Museo Lázaro Galdiano

The painting, from El Greco's first years in Spain, is imbued with the religious life of the time, with the postulates of the Counter-Reformation which promoted meditation, pray and withdrawal.
The light helps to create a supernatural atmosphere which, together with the expression and the prayer of St Francis, depicts the mystic moment when the soul comes together with God.
