The Tribute Money

Veneto school

Although the canvas was formerly considered a partial copy of Titian’s 1568 painting housed in the National Gallery of London, it is nevertheless very different. The work portrays the episode of the tribute money recounted in the Gospel According to Matthew (17, 24-27). Curiously, however, it does not depict Peter with the fish, but the tax collector who, even though he has received the tribute, challenges Jesus by looking him in the eye. Christ responds to his stare very calmly, with a gesture of his hand, emphasizing his grandeur.
