Flemish School late 16th century

Christ Preaching to a Rich Man

Oil on canvas (relined). 98 x 192 cm.

In the centre of this densely populated city view, presumably intended to depict Jerusalem, we see a group of figures with a man petitioning Christ for his advice. The picture's meaning first becomes clear when we observe the groups of figures surrounding the central group. These depict earthly life, whilst Christ advises the man to observe abstinence.
