More about this artwork
This night scene shows a music making angel comforting the blind St. Francis as his life ebbs away. The event took place in 1225 in the home of a namesake of the saint, the canon Tebaldo Sarraceni, in Rieti. The painting was probably purchased in 1620 for the Elector Maximilian I.
