Saint Francis

Raibolini Francesco called Francesco Francia

Bologna c. 1450. - 1517)

Long considered to be by Perugino, as were all of Francia’s works in the Galleria, the painting is part of a devotional series featuring the isolated figure of a saint. Standing in front of a landscape – a feature common to many works of the Bolognese painter – Francis shows the stigmata and a book, an allusion to the Rule drawn up for the monastic order he founded (1209).
