The Vision of Saint Bruno, Pier Francesco Mola (1612-1666) and Studio.

Oil on canvas, 130cm by 96cm.

Bruno of Cologne was the 12th Century founder of the Carthusians, a monastic order committed to solitary meditation. The painting, which was probably acquired by the 9th Earl of Exeter in Rome, depicts a vision he had of angels appearing in the sky, with allusions to the crucifixion in the crossed trees.
