Description Calidon, or Spinalonga, is a Greek island east of Crete, the site of the last leper colony in Europe. The painting illustrates an imaginary event: a leper uprising against the Ottoman rule in the 16th century . The headstrong leader of the rebellion gazes off to the horizon, towards the advancing Turkish fleet.
