Penitent Magdalen
Oil on canvas. 1641
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

Traditionally identified as the woman who was a sinner and wept on Christ’s feet and wiped away her tears with her hair (Luke 7:36-50), Mary Magdalene is shown here as the hermit saint she became upon giving up her life of moral decadence, after her encounter with the Savior. She kneels in prayer at the entrance to her cave and raises her eyes to heaven, eyes that are perhaps disproportionately la

Saint Bartholomew
Oil on canvas. 1641
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

The saint in this painting can be identified by the knife in his right hand - the tool with which he was skinned. The work is part of a set of four hermits, although it is unusual to see this saint represented in a penitent manner, in a landscape, devoting himself to meditation and contemplation. The painting is among a group of eight full-length single-figure composition of saints by Ribera that

Liberation of Saint Peter
Oil on canvas. 1639
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

Saint Peter lies in prison where his sleep is interrupted by an angel who frees him. This subject allows Ribera to create a work in which he can show the very best of his mature style. The work combines his naturalist style with strong chiaroscuro effects and with the warm palette that Ribera used increasingly in the last years of the 1630s. This painting forms a pair with Jacob’s Dream (P-1117) w

Jacob’s Dream
Oil on canvas. 1639

Jacob’s Dream
Oil on canvas. 1639
Ribera, Jusepe de, lo Spagnoletto

This painting tells of Jacob the Patriarch´s mysterious dream, as told in Genesis. He appears asleep, lying on his left shoulder with a tree behind him. On the other side is the ladder of light, by which the angels ascend and descend. This subject demonstrates Ribera´s skill at constructing metaphoric discourse. He uses the image of a shepherd resting in the countryside to describe one of the best
