Saint Bartholomew by Peter Paul Rubens



Peter Paul Rubens (15771640) painting of Saint Bartholomew is now in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. It was painted around 1612.

One of the apostles, Batholomew, was introduced to Christ by Philip. Little is written in the Bible about him. The painting shows Bartholomew holding a knife which is a reference to his death when he was flayed alive.
