Technique: Oil on canvas
Museum: Ashmolean Museum

The Holy Trinity with St Philip Neri in Glory served as a model for the fresco in the cupola of the chapel of S. Filippo Neri in the church of the Oratorians, Naples, which was painted by Solimena in 1727-30. St Philip Neri (1515 - 1595), the founder of the Oratorian order, receives a crown or halo from an angel, while a female religious, probably St Francesca Romana (1384 - 1440) looks on. The leading Neapolitan artist of the late baroque period, Solimena was a rapid and versatile painter who worked for an international clientele.
