Description

Sebastian, a Roman army officer who converted to the Christian faith, was sentenced to death during the persecutions of the Emperor Diocletian. He was tied to a pole, or a tree, and pierced by arrows shot by the soldiers, who then abandoned him in agony. However, the Roman noblewoman Irene took pity on him and healed him, but according to another tradition it was the miraculous intervention of the angels that saved him. Sebastian was led again in the presence of the emperor who ordered him to be scourged to death and to throw his body into the city sewer, the Cloaca Maxima, so that it could not be buried. The painting, created by Rubens during his first stay in Rome, presents the iconography of the saint cured by the angels: Sebastiano is in the center of the scene, now almost completely free from ropes and arrows, while on the left a wonderful armor resting on the ground. remember the military career. The balance of the composition, the references to the classicism of ancient Rome and the palette of warm tones, in addition to the lively flourishes of the drapery, are some of the most characteristic elements of the Flemish artist's Italian period.
