Saint Anthony Abbot

1450 - 1460. Tempera on panel.
Room 052A

This must have been the central panel of an altarpiece dedicated to Saint Anthony Abbot. He is shown with his attribute of a pig. The flames at his feet allude to the illness known as "Saint Anthony´s fire". Reixach is a key figure in hipano-flemish painting in Valencia in the middle decades of the fifteenth century. He ran a large workshop.
