The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian
Oil on canvas. Ca. 1637
Leonardo, Jusepe

In contrast to most depictions of this episode, here Saint Sebastian has not yet been tied to the tree. Two executioners prepare his martyrdom. The divine light falling on him allows the artist to focus on the expression of the saint’s face and the modelling of his body.

Oil on canvas. 1664
Coello, Claudio

Raised on a cloud, Saint Augustine (354-430) triumphantly combats Hell and Paganism, symbolised by the dragon and classical sculpture below. The compositional dynamism is emphasised by the sinuous form of the saint’s body, its sense of movement and the group of angels clustered around him, including one on the right that directs its sword against the enemies of religion. The canvas was painted for

The fifth-century Saint Onuphrius was a Persian hermit who withdrew as an Anchorite to the desert of Thebes, where a raven miraculously brought his daily ration of food. At his feet, a crown and scepter allude to his royal origins as, according to legend, he was the son of a Persian king. He renounced his earthly wealth in favor of prayer and meditation. A contemporary of Velázquez, Collant

The boat miraculously landed on the shores of the Gulf of Marseilles, where the rest of the saint´s life ran its course. This place, in which she chose to devote herself to the contemplation of divine matters, was barren
