Jacopo Bassano: 'The Purification of the Temple'

This late work is known in several other versions. The story is taken from the New Testament (Matthew 21: 12-13), when Jesus 'cast out all them that sold and bought... overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold the doves' in the Temple in Jerusalem, invoking divine authority for doing so. In the distance can be seen the indignant Chief Priests and Scribes, and also the blind and lame whom Christ healed.
