Martyrdom of St Lawrence: Jusepe de Ribera

Spanish Painter Jusepe de Ribera painted Martyrdom of St Lawrence in Italy in 1624 where he produced all of his works throughout his lifetime. Here he is painting an event whereby St Lawrence, protector of the Holy Grail is accepting his inevitable fate of death for refusing to hand over the church’s treasures to Roman Emperor Valerian.

Jusepe de Ribera’s Martyrdom of St Lawrence is in the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) in Melbourne, Australia
