Saint Francis Conversing with a Person

1788 - 1789. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

Saint Francis and an elegantly dressed figure wearing a feathered cap -he may be the mayor of Assisi- converse alongside a tree trunk at the right. This is the episode in which the mayor cedes a plot of land to Saint Francis for a residence and place of prayer. Some burger appear in the background, one with a mallet over his shoulder, while a young man in the foreground holds a rope tied to a stake driven into the ground as a means of measuring the land.
