Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 30 (Sale info: For Sale).
The Saint with uplifted countenance, and devotional attitude, is offering up a song of thanksgiving and praise, and accompanying the voice with the music of the viol. The high estimation in which the productions of this great master are held in Europe, is no doubt the cause of so few of his works being seen in this country. The connoisseur will recognize by the power of handling, purity of color, and dignity of character, not only a genuine specimen, but one that would not suffer in comparison with anything of the kind, in any Gallery of Europe.
