The Calling of Saint Anthony, Aertgen Claesz. van Leyden, c. 1530
This many-sided composition represents the moment when the wealthy Anthony, standing at right, answers the priest’s call during his sermon to give away all his worldly possessions. In the right background Anthony is distributing bread to the poor. The lifelike fly on the white cap of the woman at front is an illusionistic joke by the painter.
