  • Painting Description

    "St. James the Greater" is a Renaissance painting by the Venetian artist Carlo Crivelli, created circa 1475. The artwork is a tempera on panel piece that depicts Saint James the Greater, one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus, who is traditionally identified by his pilgrim's staff and the scallop shell, a symbol of pilgrimage. The painting is characterized by Crivelli's meticulous attention to detail, his use of bold colors, and the intricate patterns and textures that adorn the saint's garments and the surrounding elements.

    In the painting, St. James is portrayed standing in a classical contrapposto pose, holding a book in one hand, which signifies his role as an evangelist, and a pilgrim's staff in the other. The background of the painting features a landscape that is typical of Crivelli's works, with rocky outcrops and a clear blue sky that contrasts with the saint's golden halo, further emphasizing his sanctity.

    Carlo Crivelli, known for his distinctive style that combined Northern European influences with the Italian tradition, was active during the latter half of the 15th century. His works are renowned for their decorative quality and the use of trompe-l'oeil effects to create the illusion of three-dimensionality. "St. James the Greater" exemplifies Crivelli's artistry and his contribution to the Early Renaissance period, particularly in the Marche region of Italy where he worked for much of his career.

    The painting is part of a larger series of panels that were originally part of an altarpiece or a polyptych, which was a common format for religious artworks during the Renaissance. Each panel would have depicted different saints or scenes from the Bible, intended to inspire devotion among the faithful. Over time, many such polyptychs were disassembled, and their individual panels dispersed to various collections.

    "St. James the Greater" by Carlo Crivelli is held in high esteem by art historians and is considered an important example of the artist's oeuvre. The painting can be found in a prominent art institution or museum, where it continues to be studied and appreciated for its artistic and historical significance.
