Saint Ildephonsus and Recceswinth in the Tomb of Saint Leocadia / Two Standing Figures of Saints

XVII century. Pencil, Pencil on ivory laid paper.
Not on display

The scene takes place in an architectural setting with an altar on the right and an open sarcophagus on which the saint is half-kneeling. To the left, Saint Ildephonsus, wearing pontifical vestments, holds out his hands to receive the scissors that are held out by Recceswinth, standing behind the tomb.

The attribution to Cajés is perfectly plausible in view of the character, the technique and the proportions of the figures. Nevertheless, it is not entirely convincing.
