Object Description

Photograph of "Peter Healing a Lame Man," part of an altarpiece painted by Liberale da Verona. The painting depicts Saint Peter as holding the hand of a man who is sitting on the ground. With his other hand, Peter gestures toward the man as if to present him to the onlookers on the right area of the image. Another saintly figure stands next to Peter, looking upward with his hands in prayer.
