The Third Denial of St. Peter — Tissot

This striking artwork by Tissot depicts the apostle Peter denying that he knows the Savior in response to an accusing maidservant, just as the bound Christ is led past by soldiers and gives Peter a sorrowful look. Saint Peter stands a short distance from the servants' fire, shamefully in the shadow of a wall. The white light falls directly on the face of the maidservant.
