The Death of Saint Paul the Hermit

Ca. 1649. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

Standing in the foreground with a crozier at his feet, Saint Anthony looks to the heavens and orders the lions to leave the grave so that he can bury Saint Paul, who lies on a boulder above at the center of the composition. Paul´s soul is represented by the female figure being transported to Heaven by angels. This is a companion work to The Apostle Saint James, or Saint James the Moor Slayer (P4933). Dated in 1649 and on loan to the museum of Ciudad Rodrigo Cathedral, this work passed from the El Paular Charterhouse to the Museo de la Trinidad, where it was listed as anonymous.
