Jan van Huysum
Arcadian Landscape with Saints Peter and John Healing the Lame Man

1724-1725 Zu sehen in Saal 11

The apostles Peter and John are on their way to the temple, when they come across a lame beggar. Instead of giving the man money, they heal him. They are performing their miracle in a southern forest landscape, with a waterfall, rocks and classical temples.

Van Huysum specialised in still-lifes, but he also painted this type of landscape. This work belongs with another painting showing a similar idealised world that is reminiscent of Italy.
