Description: Conversion of St. Paul

This chaotic scene is full of lively horses, gesturing soldiers, and dazzling colors, all against a backdrop of towering rock formations.  The focus of the action is in the center foreground, where a white horse has collapsed to its knees. The rider is St. Paul, dressed in deep blue armor topped by a brilliant red cloak. He gazes upward to the top right corner of the painting, where the clouds part to reveal the bearded figure of God.
