Saint Anthony of Padua with the Infant Christ

1767 - 1769. Oil on canvas

Saint Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) wears a Franciscan habit and meditates before a book over which the Christ Child appears. This is one of the miracles of that saint´s tradition. The spray of lilies in the foreground is one of his iconographical symbols, and is accompanied here by the basket that symbolizes the alms on which that saint lived. This work was designed for an altar in the church of San Pascual at the Royal Seat of Aranjuez. The bottom-to-top perspective contributes to the composition´s monumentality.
