Shadows, Light, And Colours

 Continuing on in the Baroque Room, this is Christ and The Woman of Samaria. It is by Guercino, and dates to 1647.

The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew is a dramatically lit work by Luca Giordino, circa 1650-59.


The Arrest of Christ is circa 1630-32, and is by Matthias Stom.


Here we have Lot and his Daughters. Dating to 1622, it is by Grazio Gentileschi.


Two final views of the Baroque Room end things for the day.

  8. I wonder what direction art would have taken if it had not been necessary to appease the church.

  9. Amazing paintings and those red rooms.... like surrounded by the blood of the artists during that time. I cannot imagine how they must've suffered for their art.

    Thanks for sharing William,

  26. i always prefer Christ (Jesus) views that make him look super kind and friendly. this is one ... i think of him being a bit dark in color. not white like myself. but any who ... whatever makes your heart happy. do that. ( ;
