Christ and the Canaanite Woman

Ludovico Carracci

The three pictures in the series, two of which are on display here, shared the horizontal format appropriate for overdoors and all depicted Gospel stories in which Christ has dealings with a woman. Ludovico – who worked with his cousins Annibale and Agostino on a fresco cycle also commissioned by Abbot Sampieri in the palazzo in Bologna for which the set was intended – illustrates the story of a mother from Canaan who insists with Jesus that He exorcise her daughter.
