Visiting the Sick, Michael Sweerts, c. 1646 - c. 1649

olieverf op doek, h 75cm × w 99cm. More details

Helpful visitors enter the home of a poor family to minister to the sick. Seated next to a bed, a doctor points his finger upward, as though to say that only God holds man’s fate in his hands. Standing by the side of an old woman is a child, who gazes imploringly at the viewer.
