Artist: Nicolas Poussin – c. 1655

At the temple in Jerusalem where the old and infirm beg alms, Peter and John cure a crippled man (Acts 3:1–10): "Then Peter said, Silver and gold I do not have; but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." The measured composition is indebted to works by Raphael, and the gestures of the central group are reminiscent of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel. This artwork was painted in Rome for a merchant named Mercier from Lyons.

St. Peter’s feast day is June 29.
