The painting of Saint Lucy is attributed to
Massimo Stanzione, one of the most outstanding personalities in the Neapolitan artistic scene. 
Much appreciated for the creation of altarpieces, his style is a blend of Emilian painting influences of Reni with the
post-Caravaggesco darkness. 
The scene depicts the Saint, tied by his captors who attempt to drag her while she resists with boldness to martyrdom. 
The image of the young Lucy, emerging from the dark background, is made with mystical sensuality.
