A colorful 19th-century Saint Isidore retablo and nicho frame. Attributed to Agustin Barajas, better known by his handle—'The Skimpy Painter'. Circa 1880.
San Ysidro Labrador (Saint Isidore the Laborer), the patron saint of farmers, is invoked for agricultural issues, good weather, before picnics, and before harvest for a prosperous crop. In retablo art, he is always working in the fields and shown disproportionately larger than his angel helper and cattle. According to legend, San Ysidro was instructed by God to stop working on the Sabbath, but the Saint was too overwhelmed with work and would not obey. The lord warned him three times before San Ysidro finally accepted the Lord's offer of an angel to help him complete his chores.
Displayed in a colorful reverse glass painted and punched tin nicho frame.
Dimensions: frame measures 16 inches x 11 inches.
Condition notes: Retablo is in good, original condition with minimal paint loss. Nicho lacking some glass.
