Abstract

Tintoretto's paintings (now in S. Stefano) for the Venetian parish church of S. Margherita were designed to go in an aisle above the banco (bench and desk) of a Confraternity of the Sacrament; so were his paintings in S. Marcuola, S. Simeon Grande, and S. Polo. This article examines two topics hitherto virtually ignored: the physical and conceptual considerations attending a painting made for a banco, and the problem of designing a large composition for a narrow aisle. The rule books (mariegole) of the confraternities have furnished essential information, including previously unpublished dates for two of the projects.
