The Martyrdom of San Hipolito. 17th century Spanish colonial oil on copper. Saint Hippolytus is the patron saint of horses and prison guards. In Latin, the word ‘Hipo’ means horse and ‘Lito’ means loose. Hippolitus was tied to two wild horses (see small vignette with horses on right side of painting) and dragged to his death.
** According to Kurt Stephen's Acquisition Scale of Ascending Difficulty, which ranks the rarity of subjects on a scale of one to ten (ten being the most rare), this San Hipolito is ranked nine.
Dimensions: 9.75 inches x 7 inches.
In original, unrestored condition.
