Saint or totem: the infinite gaze of Saint Dominic

Bartolomé Bermejo was already one of Spain’s finest painters when in 1474 he accepted the commission to produce the altarpiece of Saint Dominic of Silos for the town of Daroca in Aragon. An artist of remarkable technique and no less unique capacity for thematic invention, Bermejo’s genius lay in his ability to adapt the realist pictorial language developed in Flanders to the tastes of Spanish viewers and to the specific characteristics of works such as large-scale altarpieces. A good example of this is the monumental depiction of Saint Dominic of Silos painted as the principal image of the altarpiece and now on display in the Museo del Prado. 

Presented by Joan Molina Figueras, Head of the Department of Spanish Gothic Painting.
