What does the Barnes Foundation state about the artwork from the architect, artist, painter and sculptor El Greco? (© Copyright - Barnes Foundation - www.barnesfoundation.org)

St. Francis (1181-1226) kneels at the entrance to a cave, meditating on a human skull, while his friend Brother Leo clasps his hands in prayer. Placed at the center of the canvas, the skull is both the locus of contemplation and a symbol of death and hope for the afterlife. El Greco most likely created this image—along with about a dozen more that are practically identical—as a devotional aide to be used in Toledo, his adopted home city of which Francis was the patron saint. The otherworldly light, vibrating brushwork, and dramatically attenuated figures were an inspiration to modern artists like Cézanne and Picasso.
