The Healing of Tobit (ca. 1640)


The Healing of Tobit (ca. 1640)
Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn 1606 – 1669
drawing with pen and brush (16 × 16 cm) — ca. 1640
Tobit 11:11 - And took hold of his father: and he strake of the gall on his fathers' eyes, saying, Be of good hope, my father.
Tobias cures his father's eyes with the gall of a fish. An angel looks on. Tobit's wife sits at the table.

Rembrandt used this episode in four drawings and one painting.
