The Good Samaritan is an oil in canvas painting by Aimé Morot, from 1880. The subject of the painting is the Parable of the Good Samaritan from the Gospel of Saint Luke. The wounded man rides on the Samaritan’s donkey, apparently still not conscious, while the Samaritan himself holds him up. The Samaritan, an elderly man, has a face wrinkled by age and poverty that nevertheless exudes kindness and gentleness. Heavily influenced by Spanish art of the 17th century, Morot depicted the subject with a severe realism. It was one of a number of paintings on Christian themes selected for the 1880 Salon, many of which were characterised as having anatomical precision and scientific naturalism.
