Saints Peter and Paul at the Gate of the Temple, 1593

June 1, 2005-October 1, 2005
Location: Aaron and Blima Shickman Old Masters Galleries
Artist: Abel Grimmer
Curator: Shlomit Steinberg
Media: Painting
A rare painting by the Flemish master Abel Grimmer, lent by Marco Grassi Studio, New York, in honor of the Museum's 40th Anniversary, presents the Temple during the time of Jesus. As this work (based on a drawing by the draftsman Hans Vredeman de Vries) indicates, European artists often envisioned the Temple as a magnificent Western cathedral.
