Saint Rose of Viterbo

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

Compositionally, this work can be considered parallel to Saint John of Capistrano (P5350), as both are large likenesses of Saints, both hold the Crucifix in the same way, and both have a small-scale representation of another scene in the background. The fact that both canvases are the same size and both depict Franciscan saints suggests they may have been commissioned together for one of the Franciscan convents in Madrid that disappeared with the ecclesiastical disentailment of 1836. Moreover, the fact that Saint Rose of Viterbo is signed confirms the attribution of Saint John of Capistrano to Alonso del Arco.
