39. [Dutch school]

St Paul and Barnabas in Lystra.

C. 1680-1750

Drawing, pen and brown ink, brush and grey gouache, 33 x 39 cm, laid paper, unsigned.

Under passe-partout, under wooden gilt frame (not studied outside frame).

Barnabas an Paul preaching in an antique city while cripple are being healed. The Lystrians had mistaken them for Zeus and Hermes (Acts of Apostles 14:7-17). The drawing had previously been attributed to the Dutch painter and draughtsman Pieter Crijnse Volmarijn, but this attribution seem rather unlikely given the difference in style. Accompanied by a certificate.
