Ok, here’s on more painting I have to share. It is by far, IMHO the best portrait of Jesus that I have seen. I saw it in person at The Met this summer and was stirred by it. I only wish the online reproduction at the Met’s website was in color.



Christ Crowned with Thorns by Antonello da Messina (Antonello di Giovanni d’Antonio) (Italian, Sicilian, born about 1430, died 1479)
