The Good Samaritan

Joachim von Sandrart

Signed and dated bottom centre, this painting is by Joachim von Sandrart, a German whose contribution to art history was crucial but who was also an engraver and painter in his own right.
In this painting he merges an eclectic assortment of stimuli from Classical statuary (the nude on the right), while the landscape in the background owes a debt to Lorrain and the nuanced atmosphere echoes Titian’s work. The picture once belonged to the painter Andrea Appiani, a curator at the Brera.
