The Seven Works of Mercy, Master of Alkmaar, 1504

oil on panel, h 101cm × w 54cm. More details

A Dutch city is the backdrop to this narrative that shows how a good Christian should help those in need. Christ stands among the spectators in almost every panel. The scenes give an impression of urban society around 1500. The work was badly damaged during the Iconoclasm of 1566, when Roman Catholic churches were vandalized by Protestants.
