Donated by Edward to the Aged Colored Women’s Home in 1890. The Manufacturers and Farmers Journal, on April 17, 1890  said that “Christ Healing the Sick” was one of several painting contributed to the shelter. It goes on to say that the painting is, "singularly in consonance with the spirit of the beneficence itself. It was painted a score of years ago. Christ stands with hands spread over a sick man that has been brought to his feet, and at his left is a woman holding appealingly toward him her dead babe. Scoffing Sadducees are in the background, and a lame and feeble patriarch is being helped to the savior by a strong arm."

 Robert P. Brown

Exhibition and Bibliographic History 

Described in the January 22, 1884 Providence Evening Press as “one of the loveliest pictures” in Edward’s studio exhibition. The painting, “describes a small inlet rendered dark and somber by the overhanging trees and bushes and the coming twilight, in rich contrast with the flood of golden splendors lighting up the uplands in the distance. The fisherman, drawing in his boat, with his red jacket adds an effective bit of color to the scene. So faithfully is the feeling of twilight rendered that to look at the picture causes that calm peaceful feeling that invariably comes with the closing of day and the rest from wearisome labor.” Providence Art Club, Edward Mitchel Bannister: memorial exhibition, May 1901.
