More information

Jordaens made this drawing on a large sheet made up of five smaller pieces of paper. It may have been a preparatory design for a tapestry, known as a cartoon, perhaps for the series ‘The Acts of the Apostles’. The estate of the Antwerp-based tapestry merchant Michiel Wauters included a ‘chamber tapestry, Acts of the Apostles, six pieces’ and ‘cartoons of Apostles, eight pieces’. Wauters owned approximately thirty cartoons, which he had acquired from Jordaens’ estate less than a year before his own death.
