Angel carrying thurible

Francisco de Zurbarán1637/1639

Museo de Cádiz

Museo de Cádiz

The two angles carrying thuribles which are held in the Museum of Cádiz were possibly located in the aisle of the side chapel in the Carthusian Monastery in Jerez, where the Carthusian saints were located. Zurbarán confidently combined the colours with daring contrasts, using intense tones. The figure of the angel is filled with solemnity and elegance. The use of the strong colour of the tunic, which marvellously contrasts with the bodice, in addition to the detail in the drawing and the folds are impressive. This is, undoubtedly, a masterpiece.
