Saint Francis receives the Stigmata

Second half of the XVIII century. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

This is an important work among the small religious output of a painter particularly known for his tapestry cartoons. It also contributes to knowledge of the Madrid followers of Anton Raphael Mengs, whose influence is evident in the compositional clarity, naturalism of the flesh tones and expressivity of the saint, shown receiving the stigmata from a cherubim in his hands, feet and side.
