The Healing of the Lame Man

The Healing of the Lame Man
Raphael 1483 – 1520
bodycolour on paper on canvas (340 × 540 cm) — c. 1516

Acts 3:1 - Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

This cartoon is Raphael's design intended for a tapestry in the Sistine Chapel. Raphael painted the sheets of paper. A weaver copied the design to a tapestry. Many years later the sheets were mounted onto canvas.

The man holding the crippled man's hand is Peter. He is accompanied by John.
