Tobias and the Angel (small plate)

Not on view

This engraving reproduces a painting by Elsheimer of a scene from the Book of Tobit. Here Tobit’s son, Tobias, travels to a distant land under the protection of the angel Raphael, who has not yet revealed his true identity to the young man. Goudt vividly renders the reflections of trees and figures in the water along with the tiny ripples in the rocky foreground.
