Matthias Stom

Christ chasing the moneychangers from temple

Canvas

Stom’s Christ chasing the moneychangers from the temple shows a clear connection to the works of Gerard van Honthorst and Hendrick ter Brugghen in Utrecht in the physiognomies of the main actors as well as the works of Caravaggio in the composition and placement of the figures. Stom, who most likely was a pupil of Van Honthorst in Utrecht, arrived in Rome in 1630 and stayed until 1633.  Because of the foregoing, the present work (which is undated) is dateable to 1630-1633. Its narrative and convincing execution without doubt make this work one of the highlights in Matthias Stom’s oeuvre.
