Ascension of Jesus, Antoni Rovira and Pau Torrent (1630-1635)

Ascension of Jesus, Antoni Rovira and Pau Torrent (1630-1635)

This work is one of the few examples we have of the activity of these two painters in the Diocese of Girona. The most distinctive feature is the use of the compositional models of prints, such as those by the Italian engraver Raffaello Schiaminossi, and, in this case, the plate on the same theme included in his volume on the 15 mysteries of the Rosary published in Rome in 1609.
