St. Berndino presents a plaque, whilst the female saint holds a burning lamp in one hand and presents the donor with the other hand. This painting was part of a collection of 117 works belonging to the industrialist and engineer F.D. Lycett Green and bequeathed to York through the Art Fund, in 1955, in recognition of the remarkable efforts made after the Second World War by its curator to transform it into a gallery of international importance.
