Saint Peter, Artus Quellinus (I), 1658 - 1659

h 48cm. More details

During the years when Quellinus was working on the new Town Hall in Amsterdam, he retained his workshop in Antwerp, which is where this figure of Saint Peter originated. It is a preparatory study for a large marble statue for the tomb of Pieter Saboth in the local Sint-Andrieskerk. Quellinus rarely produced works of a religious nature, such as this Saint Peter, in predominantly Protestant Amsterdam.
