Saint Peter Healing the Sick with his Shadow

The May of 1635, painted by Laurent de La Hyre, characterizes the French classical painting style popular in Paris in the years 1630-1640. The theme is taken from the “Acts of the Apostles”. De la Hyre translates his taste for antiquity and classical culture through the antique decor of his works. Its palette is characterized by a harmony of clear and pure colors. The painting hung in the north transept of the cathedral.
