The Conversion of Saint Paul: Juan Bautista Maíno

In The Conversion of Saint Paul, a dramatic painting from 1614 by Spanish Baroque artist Juan Bautista Maíno we witness the moment on the road of Damascus when Saul the tax collector becomes Paul the Christian evangelist. Paul lies prone on the ground with his arm raised to the apparition of angels and Christ who communicate with him only; the rest of Saul’s company are seen oblivious walking on in the right foreground.

Juan Bautista Maíno’s The Conversion of Saint Paul is in the National Museum of Art of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain
