The Martyrdom of Saint Eurosia, 1728

I’m very pleased to be able to present a painting by a female artist from the early 18th century. The decapitation of Eurosia, patron saint of the city of Jaca, Spain is depicted. According to tradition, she was a princess forced into marriage with a prince of the invading Moors. Understandably, she determined this was a less than ideal union and tried to escape. Caught by the Moors, she was beheaded.
