Saint Sebastian speaking to Marcus and Marcellian and Saint Sebastian and Saint Polycarp destroying Idols

Ca. 1470. Oil on panel Not on display

In the upper section, within an urban setting with a cobbler`s workshop in the background, Saint Sebastian is seen exhorting the brothers Marcus and Marcellian to ignore their family`s pleas and not renounce their Christian faith, for which they have been imprisoned. In the lower section, Sebastian and Polycarp destroy pagan idols in order to cure the Roman prefect Cromatius of his illness. Influenced by Jaime Huguet, Benabarre worked in Aragon and Catalonia.
