Feast in the House of Simon the Pharisee

Feast in the House of Simon the Pharisee, also known as Christ in the Home of Simon the Pharisee, is a painting by Peter Paul Rubens. It was painted c. 1618-1620, and is in The Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg.[1]

The painting depicts an incident from Luke 7 where Jesus visits Simon the Pharisee, and has his feet anointed by a "sinful woman". Jesus proceeds to tell the Parable of the Two Debtors.
