In this large altar painting Veronese does not abandon his characteristic sumptuous style, especially in the saints' chasubles and in the architecture where the scene takes place. The most interesting element in the painting is perhaps the realism of their faces, linking the painting to the Baroque style that was soon to reach its peak. The composition is arranged around a triangular format and the figures are placed in different planes to create a sense of depth. A powerful beam of light is used to create contrasts between areas of light and shade. The colours are very bright, and the use of gold for the decorations on the chasubles stands out as does the exquisite marble decoration. The young page boy, depicted in a foreshortened pose, holding an open book and looking at the spectator, is a typical Mannerist technique.
