The Parable of the Blind Leading the Blind

1568: Galleria Nazionale at Naples

Illustrating the biblical line of Christ "And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into a ditch", the moralising tone of this painting is clear but, in light of the little that is known of the artist's politics or religion, the exact nature of the moral is open to interpretation.
