Vision of St. Francis by Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo

Vision of St. Francis by Bartolomeo Esteban Murillo

This picture is a typical altar image. In it, the author follows the Italian compositional scheme. He portrays St. Francis, kneeling and talking, as it were, to Christ sitting in heaven, with a cross in his hands. Especially expressive is the face of Christ, full of humility.

The figure of Francis impresses with its magnificent design and subtle plastic expressiveness. The color scheme of the canvas, as it were, divides the space of the picture into a light vision and a dark earth vale at the same time leaves a feeling of surprising coloristic unity.
