Which depiction is the most saintly? Saint Francis in Prayer by Francisco Zurbaran or Saint Ignatius of Loyola by Peter Rubens

.

Option 1:

During week 10 we looked at the Baroque in Spain. Soon, we will be looking at the same time period in N. Europe. In order to account for the many facets and unique styles of Baroque art, I want you to write a paper that compares/contrasts 2 well-known works of the Baroque – one by a Spanish artist from the south, the other by a Flemish, northern European master.

OUTLINE:

Please concentrate on the content and meaning of these works, I don’t need any biographical information about these painters or purely physical descriptions of the paintings. Instead, talk about what the artist is saying in the work.?? In essence discuss the respective work’s differences and consider the following central question in your analysis: which depiction is the most saintly?

Visit the Norton Simon Museum website www.nortonsimon.org and browse their site to look for the following works: Saint Francis in Prayer, by Francisco de Zurbar?n? & Saint Ignatius of Loyola, by Peter Paul Rubens

OR, better still – go to the Norton Simon Museum itself and see the works first hand! It is in Pasadena very close to the 210 freeway. Both pictures are currently on display.

Compare/contrast 1. Saint Francis in Prayer, c. 1638-39, by Francisco de Zurbar?n? & 2. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, c. 1620-22, by Peter Paul Rubens

OPTION 2:
