Clothing the Naked, Michael Sweerts, c. 1646 - c. 1649

oil on canvas, h 74cm × w 99cm. More details

By having one of the figures look out of the painting at the viewer, Sweerts enhances the poignancy of ‘clothing the naked’. The brightly lit shoulder of the man at the centre of the composition emphasizes his nakedness, giving the painting a sense of immediacy.
