Caption

The scene is taken from the New Testament in The Bible. On seeing that the Temple in Jerusalem had been turned into a market place by money-changers and traders, he was infuriated, and drove them out. He holds a makeshift whip of cords with which to chase them. It was for this kind of ‘history painting’ that Rosa aspired to be known, rather than for his romantic landscapes and banditti (characterisations of bandits, usually set within a landscape). This picture appears to have been bought by the 3rd Lord Berwick from the palazzo of the marchese Nicolò Cattaneo Grillo dal Portelle in Genoa. It is coarsely painted so was probably always intended to be seen at a distance.

Summary

Oil painting on canvas, Christ expelling the Money Changers from the Temple by Salvator Rosa (Arenella, Naples 1615 – Rome 1673), signed on table-leg at right: SR (monogram), 1660s. A group of half-length figures, Christ wearing a white robe and blue cloak, his arm raised, brandishing a rope and facing a confused crowd. On the left a woman with caged birds, a man with goat stands next to her.

Provenance
