A medieval St. Matthew and the Angel


The angel seems to be saying, "Excuse me, may I interest you in writing a gospel?"

Have you seen Carvaggio's "Calling of St Matthew"? At the precise moment of his call, St Matthew appears to have a "Me?" look on his face. I would like to think that if Carvaggio had painted St Matthews reaction AFTER he realized it was him who Jesus was inviting to follow Him, St Matthew's reaction would be one of outstanding joy. Carvaggio, IMO, manages to capture "action" moments very well.

Oh yes, I love the Caravaggio.

I love how this has a bit of iconography look about the fabric. Thank you for sharing such a lovely piece. God bless you!
