Abstract

The painting "Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata" was created by the Cracovian paiter - Michał Stachowicz, in 1807. The painting depicts the episode on Mount of La Verna from 1224, during which St. Francis received stigmas. By composition, the painting refers to fresco of Angiolo di Bondone - called Giotto in Scrovegni Chapel in Padua (around 1275-1299). Two years later, Michał Stachowicz created a series of other works for the monastery, among others: antependiums, paintings of "St. Clare", "St. John Cantius", "St. Valentine" and others. The painting "Saint Francis Receiving the Stigmata" was originally designed for the side altar, funded by the Cholewowie family from Wieliczka after 1718. However, when an older work with the same content from 1730 was discovered during the conservation of the painting - the painting of Stachowicz was hung on the side wall of the Chapel of Christ Crucified and the 18th century's presentation was left in the main area of the altar.
