Velasquez
Saint Anthony Abbot and St. Paul the Hermit

1642
Oil on canvas, 257 x 188 cm
Museo del Prado, Madrid

Anthony is on the left in the black habit of the Hospitallers of St. Anthony. The raven above him is carrying a double loaf of bread to feed the two saints. In the lower left corner is the next episode in the story: Anthony returns and finds Paul dead; then two lions (here we see only part of the head of the second one) dig a grave for the saint). Behind Paul is the cave that is his shelter.
