The denial of St. Peter - Follower of Mattia Preti 1613/1699
The Denial of St. Peter is an episode of the Passion of Christ. Each of the four Gospels reports that after the arrest of Jesus, the Apostle Peter (for fear of risking death too) denied three times having any relationship with him. Then, when the rooster crowed, Peter came out and wept bitterly, remembering the announcement that Christ had made of this cowardice: "Before the rooster crows, you will have denied me three times."
This composition with several characters in an inn some of which play dice are found in many painters. A servant pointing at Saint Peter.
