Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata (Rubens)

Peter Paul Rubens - Franciscus van Assisi ontvangt de stigmata.JPG

Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata is a painting by Peter Paul Rubens, produced for the Franciscan monastic church in Ghent, probably part of a commission for three works for the same church - the others were St Mary Magdalene in Ecstasy (Palace of Fine Arts, Lille) and The Virgin Mary and Saint Francis Saving the World from Christ's Anger (Royal Museum of Fine Arts, Brussels). It has been variously dated to around 1630 and to between 1615 and 1620. Frans Pilsen, Philippe Lambert, Joseph Spruyt and Willem Pieterszoon Buytewech all produced prints of it.

In 1797 the painting was seized from Saint Peter's Abbey, Ghent to form part of a new 'Nationaal Museum', which opened to the public in 1802. It now hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent.
