Saint Francis of Assisi

1515 - 1525. Oil on panel.
Not on display

This panel and its pair Saint Onuphrius (P07947), must originally have formed part of a more complex structure probably produced during the artist’s last years in Valencia or his first years in Cuenca. This dating is suggested by the looser, more painterly technique, and by the use of a lighter, more diluted pigment which emphasizes the fullness of the forms. The handling of space is characteristic of Yáñez: the figures are placed in front of a rough brick wall, behind which the walls of a city can just be discerned in the landscape background.
