Interior of the church of the Convent of San Benedetto, Subiaco, Latium Region.
The convent of San Benedetto (St. Benedict) called the Holy Grotto is an ancient monastery dedicated to St. Benedict of Nursia (480-547).
The ancient Benedictine monastery is located in Subiaco, near Rome, in the Lazio region.
The painter certainly wanted to pay tribute to Marius Granet (1775-1849), who presented at the Salon of 1819 a painting of the same subject, but taken from another angle.
Our painting could be the one presented by the artist at the Salon of 1836.
Period frame on which it is necessary to consider some restorations.
