Note: It might correspond to one of the two paintings of Saint Francis of Assis which were saved from the convent of the Capuchins following the events of 1835 and which, very likely owing to space problems in the Llotja, was carried together with other works to the adjacent building of the institution, the former convent of Sant Sebastià, seat of the Junta d'Agricultura.
