The Deliverance of Saint Peter 17th century
The subject is taken from the Acts of the Apostles (XII, 1-10) and shows St Peter being liberated from prison by an angel. Despite the picture’s high quality and distinctive style, no convincing attribution has yet been found for it. It appears to date from the mid-seventeenth century.
