Carlo Crivelli: 'Saint Francis'
This painting is part of the group: The Demidoff Altarpiece
This panel showing Saint Francis is part of the large 'Demidoff Altarpiece' made for the high altar of San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno, east central Italy.

Born in about 1181, Saint Francis of Assisi, founder of the Franciscan Order, is shown at prayer. His most famous attribute, the stigmata (the wounds of Christ) are clearly visible in his hands and side. He wears the traditional brown habit of his order with its rope belt. The three knots in the rope symbolise the three vows of the order: chastity, poverty and obedience.
