  • Saints Peter and John Healing the Lame Man, 1655
    Nicolas Poussin (French, 1594–1665)
    Oil on canvas; 49 1/2 x 65 in. (125.7 x 165.1 cm)
    Marquand Fund, 1924 (24.45.2)

    At the temple in Jerusalem where the old and infirm beg alms, Peter and John cure a cripple (Acts III:1–10): "Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." The composition recalls Raphael, and the gestures of the central group are reminiscent of Michelangelo's Creation of Adam in the Sistine Chapel.
