Consegna dell'anello al doge, or Fisherman giving the ring to the Doge, 1534, Renaissance painting by Paris Bordone, 1500-71, in the Gallerie dell’Accademia, Venice, Italy. The painting represents the legend of the fisherman who ferried St Mark, St George and St Nicholas across the lagoon to save Venice from a tempest in 1340. The saints gave him a ring which he presented to Doge Bartolomeo Gradenigo, although the Doge in the painting is the contemporary Doge Andrea Gritti. The painting was originally for the Sala dell’Albergo in the Scuola Grande di San Marco and contains portraits of many of the senators and procurators of the day. Picture by Manuel Cohen
