Ford Madox Brown - Jesus Washing Peter's Feet.

1852-56. retouched several times up to 1892.
Oil on canvas
Exhibited for the first time the same year as his masterpiece Work (1853). He used family and friends as models. He sent it to the RA, but it was hung in such a bad situation, he stormed out anf vowed to display his pictures himself from then on.
