GOYA PAINTED THE WORK “THE ECSTASY OF SAINT ANTHONY” OF THE ZARAGOZA MUSEUM

A painstaking restoration of an unsigned painting, acquired in 1925 by the Zaragoza Museum, “The Ecstasy of Saint Anthony Abbot” or “Death of Saint Anthony Abbot”, has revealed that it is the work of the painter Francisco de Goya.

The curator of the Prado Museum and world specialist in the work of Goya, Manuela Mena, has carried out the works of conservation of the work.

“The Ecstasy of Saint Anthony Abbot” or “Death of Saint Anthony Abbot” is a copy with variants of a painting realized between 1741 and 1742 by Giaquinto Corrado for the church of San Giovani Calibita, located in Rome.

In this, it is represented Saint Anthony Abbot in ecstasy moments before his death.

The holy anchorite is in a secluded place sitting on a rock at sunset, ecstatic by the appearance of the young angel, who with his left hand points to the sky.

At the saint’s feet there is a bowl to drink water, an open book and a skull on another closed book, symbols of asceticism and penance.

The painting has become part of the permanent collection that is exhibited in the Museum of Zaragoza (Spain).
