1788 - 1789. Oil on canvas.
On display elsewhere

This scene is related to a passage from the life of Saint Francis in which rose bushes sprang up where his blood had fallen to the ground during one of his sessions of penance The resulting flowers were used to adorn the chapel dedicated to the Virgin at La Porciuncula, where the saint prayed during his retreat. According to tradition, that is a place frequently visited by angels, hence the chapel´s name: Our Lady of the Angels.
