Description

In a pale, autumn landscape, a row of blind people slowly walk: a ditch awaits them in which they will fall without salvation. The gospel parable - when one blind man leads another, you see them both fall into the ditch - becomes for the great painter the pretext to represent a varied and derelict humanity, investigated with a caricatural minutia in which each character assumes a expression conditioned by the position he occupies: tragically frightened what is falling into the ditch, dazed and unaware of his last in the row. The masterpiece of the mature phase, the thin linen canvas, is signed and dated 1568 in the lower left corner. The church in the village of Pede de Saint - Anne near Brussels is depicted in the distance. The work has always been considered, together with the Misanthrope, one of the masterpieces of the Farnese collection.
