Saint Thomas Aquinas

Last third of the XVII - Primer cuarto del siglo XVIII century. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

Saint Thomas Aquinas, full-length and standing, is depicted with the customary dress of the Dominican monks. He is wearing a white tunic with a scapular and a black cloak with a hood draped over his back. In his right hand, he holds a feather from which spiked rays of light emanate, and his left a book, objects that refer to his doctrine. A sun hangs on his chest, which is an attribute of his wisdom. Furthermore, two large wings protrude from his back, alluding to the moment when the angels girded the saint with the cincture of chastity. Above his head, the Holy Spirit descends from the heavens in the form of a dove to inspire him. The figure of the saint, portrayed as a young, beardless man with monastic tonsure, is superimposed on a landscape in which a small church is depicted on the left (Photograph on loan from the Museo Provincial de Lugo, the institution that holds the work).
