Not For Sale

This painting is an early-seventeenth-century, reduced workshop replica of the figure of the apostle that appears in a larger devotional canvas by El Greco, Saint Andrew and Saint Francis (Prado, Madrid). Andrew and his brother, the apostle Peter, were fishermen on the Sea of Galilee. The first to follow Christ, Andrew is said to have preached in Scythia, Asia Minor, and Greece, where he was reportedly martyred on an x-shaped cross at the hands of the Roman governor.
