The Death of St. Francis Xavier
Church of St. Francis Xavier, Manhattan, New York
Following the same iconography as in the Vallejo Death, the artist lays the body out on a mat in front of a crude shelter on a distant shore, attended by angels above and local faithful below. Vallejo in turn was following works by Carlo Maratti and Giovanni Battista Gaulli in the late 17th century, according to a label that the Metropolitan Museum provided for the painting when it was on exhibition there.
