Freiherr von Kühlmann-Stumm, Schloss Ramholz, acquired in the 1930s;

There acquired by the present collector.

Catalogue Note

Johann Zick, a Baroque German painter, was the father of Januarius Zick (1730-1797), an important master of the Late Baroque. This painting is of very high quality, given that in 1753 he was producing among his finest works, possibly even in competition with those of his son. Therefore it comes as no surprise that this painting was thought to be by his son when originally offered at auction with its signed pendant.1

The present lot depicts scenes from Acts 5:15-16 from the bible in which Saint Peter heals the sick in Jerusalem. The figure of Saint Peter is depicted through the central figure holding the key in a grandeur, yet dynamic pose that was typical for Baroque artists.

We are grateful to Dr. Josef Strasser for endorsing the attribution on the basis of images.
