In the Garden


Rembrandt (1606-1669) found frequent artistic inspiration from the Bible. There's an enormous number of canvases, sketches and engravings by him which can be viewed at the Bible and Art web-site . This Rembrandt for Easter Sunday is appropriately of the Resurrection. Jesus just looks so cool in his gardening togs. Look at the way Rembrandt, the master of dramatic light or chiaroscuro has dramatically lit the whole scene up as the light from a golden sunrise begins to flood onto  Christ. Happy Easter!
