San Camilo de Lelis
Mexico. Circa 1880
Attributed to Concepcion Avila - The Bee Sting Lip Painter.
This 19th century oil on tin folk retablo, attributed to 'The Bee Sting Lip Painter', represents 'San Camilo de Lelis', also known as the 'Red Cross Saint' -- a reference to the red cross worn on his black habit.
San Camilo is the patron saint of the sick, nurses and dyeing people, and is usually depicted as he is here, ministering to a patient at the hour of death. In nearly every example of this subject, San Camilo is accompanied by Lucifer, devilish imps and the 'Santa Muerte, all vying for the passing soul before it ascends to heaven.
Dimensions: 10 inches vertical x 7 inches horizontal.
Condition: lower half of painting with paint loss. Puncture along top edge.
