The New Testament tells of how the Pharisees tested Jesus, asking him if it were lawful to give tribute money to the emperor. He then asks them to produce a coin, draws their attention to the portrait of the emperor on it and answers: “Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s.” Strozzi, who came from Genoa and was later active in Venice, unites stimuli from Caravaggio and Rubens in his work with the coloration of the Venetians.
