’St. Peter unlocking the gate of heaven.’
The altar wall of the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows St. Peter welcoming the virtuous and unlocking the gate of heaven for them. The image is part of a Last Judgment scene that was executed in 1492 by Currand Bravesi and Guirard Nadal, two of the so-called 'peintres primitifs niçois' (primitive painters of Nice).
