Adoration of Saint Francis
Information about author
Most of the composition is taken by the figure of a kneeling monk with his arms wide apart. The robe is girded with a thick cord. The Holy Spirit depicted as a pigeon is shown in the upper left corner of the painting; five rays of light come out of it, touching the monk's hands. In the lower right corner there are images of a human skull and a bush of white flowers (camomiles ?). The wooden cross fixed with a cord is behind the monk's left hand. The effulgence is over the monk's head. To the left of the man there is a figure of an elderly monk lying on the grass and resting his elbow on an open book. The images of angels are above the monk's head in the clouds. The mountain landscape serves as a background of the painting.
