Oil painting on canvas, The Healing of the Lame Man (after Raphael), possibly studio of Daniel Mytens the elder (Delft c.1590 – The Hague 1648). One of a set of six copies of Raphael's cartoons (originals in the Royal Collection displayed in the Victoria and Albert Museum). A man lame from birth was begging at the temple gates in Jerusalem. He begged for alms from St Peter and St John. Peter answered 'Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have I thee give; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk' The lame man stood up and walked and leapt and praised God.
