Tintoretto offers to the painting of the entire scuola and of the adjacent church of San Rocco at the rate of 100 ducats per annum, three pictures being due in each year. This proposal was accepted and was punctually fulfilled, the painter's death alone preventing the execution of some of the ceiling-subjects.
