The painting depicts The Martyrdom of St Lawrence which fits in one of the two lunettes of the chapel.
APS Bank took the initiative to sponsor the restoration of an important painting by Mattia Preti. The St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation assisted in the restoration of the entire Chapel of the langue of Aragon.
First examinations showed that the canvas had suffered several tears and that the wooden frame had deformed. Thus, it weakened the tension of the canvas.
This restoration project was completed in October 2010.
