The Healing of the Blind of Jericho

oil on panel (90 × 75 cm) — c. 1465 Museum Museum Catharijneconvent, Utrecht

This work is linked to Mark 10:46

Christ appears three times in this panel. First he leaves the town; then he speaks with a man who looks rather low-spirited. In the foreground he lays his hands on blind Bartimaeus's eyes. Bartimaeus had asked him to cure his blindness.

In the middle two men help Bartimaeus on his feet. He was probably sitting at the side of the road begging. The panel shows a few more beggars and some crippled men.
