The Liberation of Saint Peter

1791 - 1792. Oil on paper attached to cardboard Room 089

Represent the order received by St Joseph to save the Christ child from the slaughter of the Innocent, and the release of the Liberation of Saint Peter, was imprisoned by Herod. The academic nudes reveals the training of the young painter, whose loose, impasted technique recalls that of his master Maella, though he employs a cooler palette. The forced perspective indicates that the finished pictures were intended to be hung high up.
