Giacinto Diana belonged to the generation of painters who succeeded Luca Giordano. He painted in a light, colourful and dramatic style. Diana worked with the artist Francesco de Mura, whom he assisted in painting ceiling decoration in churches in Naples. This painting is a sketch or ‘modello’ showing Saint John of God helping the lame. Saint John was the patron saint of the sick and the founder of an order of hospitallers called the Brothers of Saint John of God.
