  • Siete acciones de misericordia es un cuadro del pintor italiano Caravaggio, de los primeros de su etapa napolitana. La huida de Roma se produjo tras el asesinato de un hombre, y Caravaggio se refugia en Nápoles. Es en esta ciudad que comienza su madurez pictórica, y este cuadro es una muestra de ello. La imagen es el retablo del altar mayor de la iglesia que se encuentra en la "Pio Monte della Misericordia" en Nápoles. La composiciòn vertical muestra una escena callejera, donde varios santos (Martín de Tours, Santiago el Mayor y Sansón) socorren a los pobres dando muestras de generosidad cristiana. Giulio Carlo Argan, quien no sustentó posturas de carácter confesional, consideró que esta obra es «el cuadro más importante del Seicento».

  • The Seven Works of Mercy (Italian: Sette opere di Misericordia), also known as The Seven Acts of Mercy, is an oil painting by Italian painter Caravaggio, circa 1607. The painting depicts the seven corporal works of mercy in traditional Catholic belief, which are a set of compassionate acts concerning the material welfare of others. The painting was made for, and is still housed in, the church of Pio Monte della Misericordia in Naples. Originally it was meant to be seven separate panels around the church; however, Caravaggio combined all seven works of mercy in one composition which became the church's altarpiece. The painting is better seen from il "coreto" (little choir) in the first floor. The titular seven works/acts of mercy are represented in the painting as follows: Bury the deadIn the background, two men carry a dead man (of whom only the feet are visible).Visit the imprisoned, and feed the hungryOn the right, a woman visits an imprisoned man and gives him milk from her breast. This image alludes to the classical story of Roman Charity.Shelter the homelessA pilgrim (third from left, as identified by the shell in his hat) asks an innkeeper (at far left) for shelter.Clothe the nakedSt. Martin of Tours, fourth from the left, has torn his robe in half and given it to the naked beggar in the foreground, recalling the saint's popular legend.Visit the sickSt. Martin greets and comforts the beggar who is a cripple.Refresh the thirstySamson (second from the left) drinks water from the jawbone of an ass. American art historian John Spike notes that the angel at the center of Caravaggio’s altarpiece transmits the grace that inspires humanity to be merciful. Spike also notes that the choice of Samson as an emblem of Giving Drink to the Thirsty is so peculiar as to demand some explanation. The fearsome scourge of the Philistines was a deeply flawed man who accomplished his heroic tasks through the grace of God. When Samson was in danger of dying of thirst, God gave him water to drink from the jawbone of an ass. It is difficult to square this miracle with an allegory of the Seven Acts of Mercy since it was not in fact the work of human charity.
