"Giovanni Biliverti. (1576-1644.) Florence. Angel refusing Tobias' gifts. 41 x 51. Original (no. 202) Pitti Palace Gallery, Florence. The angel Raphael, who, according to the old testament, had been the preserver of Tobias in circumstances of great danger, more especially in the matter of his marriage, is shown here refusing the gifts which the gratitude of the young man's parents induced them to offer him, they being ignorant of the fact that he was an angel. The latter disabused them of their error and disappeared."
