Photograph of part of the painting 'Saint Catherine of Alexandria' (c.1502) by Giovnni Battista Cima da Conegliano (1459-1517). Saint Catherine is depicted full length standing on a plinth. She wears a crown and holds part of a spiked wheel. The wheel is one of Saint Catherine's attributes. An identification number, '120', can be seen in the lower right corner.

At the time of the photograph, the painting was in the collection of John Rushout, 2nd Baron Northwick (1770-1859). The painting is now held by the Wallace Collection, London.
