Notes

Summary:
The life-size figures are half-length instead of full-length, and where the drama of Christ calling the tax-collector to his vocation echoes in the shadows above the figures, has been eliminated. Christ and his follower appear to the left as dark figures in the foreground. The main accent is on the brightly illuminated group on the right. Terbrugghen's original talent and old Netherlandish realism successfully merge here with Caravaggesque motifs and elements. The mercenary soldier pointing to the money on the table shows a profile which marks him as a descendant of types popularized by early sixteenth century Flemish artists, and the six gesticulating hands in the centre are also a survival of an older tradition.
General Note:
