The Spanish painter Murillo produced several paintings and sketches of St. Thomas.  Two of them are seen here. Typical of his style is the representation of St. Thomas as a child giving his clothing away to the poor.

 

The dining room of St. Thomas Monastery contains a copy of another Murillo painting of St. Thomas.
