Best wishes to all for a happy, contemplative, and restful Easter! This year's art of the Resurrection comes from Baroque Venetian painter Sebastiano Ricci and dates around 1715-16. Currently it resides in the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. Click the image to enlarge for better detail.
Usually for holiday art postings I go for something from the Renaissance, but Ricci's vision has such a wonderful sense of color and composition. Immortal angels and all-too-human soldiers alike are stunned by the sheer power of the figure of Christ risen in sublime glory.
