About this artwork

St Anthony was miraculously transported from Padua in northern Italy to Lisbon in Portugal, where his father had been falsely accused of murdering a youth. The saint had the corpse exhumed, revived the young man and commanded him to prove his father’s innocence. This is a reduced replica of an altarpiece painted in 1633-34 for a chapel in the newly built Capuchin church of Santa Maria della Concezione in Rome.
