Nicolaes Pietersz Berchem & Jan Baptist Weenix The Calling of St Matthew
Em exibição em Sala 12
The biblical story of the calling of St. Matthew is taking place in a southern port. Jesus is standing at the top of the steps and pointing to Matthew, calling him to become his disciple. Matthew is shrinking back in fright.
The book on Matthew’s lap contains the names of the makers of the painting: Berchem and Weenix. Weenix probably composed the scene, and Berchem would have painted the group around Jesus. The fact that two renowned artists worked together on this painting made it a sought-after collectors’ item.
Nicolaes Pietersz Berchem (Haarlem 1621/1622 - 1683 Amsterdam) e Jan Baptist Weenix (Amsterdam 1621 - 1659/1661 De Haar)
