The Sacrifice of Elijah Before the Priests of Baal


RCIN 405466

This work, possibly a preparatory sketch for a larger painting, was probably made about the time of Fetti’s move to Venice. It was quickly executed, giving the subject a dynamic quality. Elijah, kneeling on the right, looks up at the divine fire that descends upon his sacrificial offering. The worshippers of Baal recoil in horror.
