On his way from Jerusalem to Damascus, Saul the Pharisee, a persecutor of Christians, is struck blind, falls from his horse and hears the voice of Christ, here seen in the clouds. This is the moment of his conversion to Christianity as the Apostle Paul (Acts 9: 1-9).
While his meticulous attention to detail gives the picture a jewel-like quality, Panizzati’s dramatically bright colour range and unsettled composition convey the turbulent drama of the subject.
