Looking up the stairwell toward Main Hall from the landing. Right side painting is by Antonio Zanchi while the left is by Pietro Negri. These paintings date from the century after Tintoretto completed his painting cycles for the Scuola, and reflect the arrival of Baroque styling to Venetian painting. Both paintings depict the 1631 plague which decimated Venice and resulted in the building of Santa Maria della Salute, shown in the background of Negri's work. The Zanchi is signed.
