This rare 19th century oil on tin folk retablo represents 'San Camilo de Lelis', often referred to as the 'Red Cross Saint' -- a reference to the red cross worn on his black habit, or in this case, on the chain worn around his neck.
San Camilo de Lelis is the patron saint of the sick, nurses and dyeing people. This rare example digresses from the traditional representation(s), in which Camilo ministers to a sick man at the hour of death. Instead, he is depicted before an altar with a very animated Cristo together with a cluster of cherubs swirling overhead.
The inscription along the lower edge:
'S. Camilo de Leliz.'
Dimensions: approximately 13 inches x 19 inches.
Condition notes: punctured along upper and lower edge. Scattered paint loss. Minor wear.
