‘San Paolo In Bastia’ is one of the original paintings used in the film Finding Saint Francis . In these paintings Angela Thomas was commissioned to give the audiences a glimpse into the places most closely associated with the Franciscan story. In these watercolours she brilliantly brings to life the feeling of the Italian landscape.
San Paolo In Bastia – by Angela Thomas
This picture and that of Sant’ Angelo in Panzo were two hermitages where Francis went with Clare after she had asked Francis if she could join the brothers. Clare was the eldest daughter of Favorino and Ortalana Sciffi, an aristocratic family in Assisi. When her brothers discovered what had happened they came down to the Portzioncola to take her back home. Francis was warned of their coming and escaped with Clare first to this convent before going on to Sant’Angelo.
