Saint Leocadia before the Praetor

1774 - 1775. Oil on canvas Room 089

This is a sketch for one of the frescoes in the cloister of Toledo Cathedral depicting a scene from the life of the Toledan saint. Leocadia refused to make sacrifices to Hercules, represented by the statue on the pedestal, as a result of which the Roman Praetor, seated on the right, sentenced her to death. The luminous, vibrant and transparent technique and the movement of the figures betray the influence of the Italian painter Corrado Giaquinto (1703-1766).
