Jan van Huysum Arcadian Landscape with Saints Peter and John Healing the Lame Man
Visitabile tra Sala 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.
