Jesus and the Zebedee family

Follower of Pitati Bonifacio de' called Bonifacio Veronese

(Verona 1487 - Venice 1553)

Text not translated yet
La tela, attribuita a Tiziano dall'inventario del 1693 e poi riferita a Bonifacio de' Pitati dal fidecommisso (1833), appare in realtà più verosimilmente assegnabile alla produzione della sua fiorente bottega veneziana. La scena, ripresa dal Vangelo di Matteo (20, 20-28), raffigura la richiesta che Salome, madre di Giacomo e Giovanni , figli di Zebedeo, inoltra a Gesù. Ella, prostrata secondo il racconto, chiede a Gesù di far sedere i suoi figli accanto a Lui in Cielo, uno a destra, l’altro a sinistra.
