Label Copy

Bartolomé Bermejo is regarded as among the most important Spanish painters of the 15th century. He was a key figure in the adoption by Spanish artists of Netherlandish oil painting techniques, which he perhaps perfected by working for a time in the Brussels studio of Rogier van der Weyden. Typical of Bermejo’s work, this panel is a tour de force, combining a dramatic sense of narrative with the precisely painted details of the modern clothing and setting in which Bermejo has cast the scene. The panel is a fragment of an altarpiece dedicated to the early Christian Princess Saint Engracia, who denounced the Roman Proconsul Dacian’s persecution of Christians and was tortured and martyred. Other parts of the altarpiece, which included a large central image of the saint as well as narrative scenes like this painting, survive in Boston, Bilbao, and Daroca.
