Tobit and Anna with the Kid, Rembrandt van Rijn, 1626

oil on panel, h 39.5cm × w 30cm More details

Tobit’s blindness has condemned him and his wife to a life of grinding poverty: his once expensive tabard is torn and tattered. When Anna comes home with a kid, a reward for her hard work, Tobit thinks she has stolen it. In desperation, he prays God to grant him a quick death. Anna looks on in bewilderment.
