A Meat Stall with the Holy Family Giving Alms (detail).
b 115.5 x 169.0 cm.
c Oil on panel.
In the 16th and 17th centuries it was quite common for theologians to see a slaughtered animal as symbolizing the death of a believer. Allusions to the 'weak flesh' (cf. Matthew 16:41) may well have been associated with Aertsen's Butcher's Stall where like on his fruit and vegetable stalls a seemingly infinite abundance of meat has been spread out.
Style: Dutch Northern Renaissance.
