Backstories | The Angel of Escalante

Film

The Backstories series tells remarkable object histories about works from the collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. This episode is about the painting "An Angel Awakens the Prophet Elijah in the Wilderness". X-rays of the wooden panel that serves as the image carrier revealed an interesting secret about this small work of art from the Siglo de Oro.
