Title: Saint Francis in Ecstasy
Artist: Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (Il Grechetto) (Italian, Genoa 1609–1664 Mantua)
Date: ca. 1650
Medium: Oil on canvas

Description from www.metmuseum.org:
”Wearing a Capuchin habit, Saint Francis (1181/82–1226) is shown on a rocky precipice, silhouetted against an evening sky. He was famously devoted to Christ crucified and is shown in a state of ecstasy. The open book and skull are symbols of the vanities of the world and mortality. Castiglione employs a richly varied technique to mark the transition from the material world to the spiritual. The picture was painted in Rome, probably as an altarpiece, though its original location is unknown.”
