Michel Ciry, The Risen Christ. "The twentieth century has seen a de-mythologizing of Christian beliefs. Jesus' humanity has been emphasized at the expense of his divinity. The idea of the 'historical Christ' has taken a firm hold of the modern mind, at the expense of Jesus as God. Modern 'rational' thinking means that everything has to be 'provable fact.' Hence, Ciry paints a 20th century Risen Christ who looks very like Dan, the nice man in the local Deli."
He Qi, Easter Morning, painting - "A triumphant angel carrying a luminous lily signifying purity and peace announces that Christ has risen, conquering the demons of darkness, who now flee. The women, still asleep, are unaware that Jesus has risen, but the angel is here to tell them that the time for rejoicing is at hand.
James Tissot, Angel seated on theStone of the Tomb, watercolor, 1886. In this incredible water color, the stone has been rolled away and the angel sits agains it; four other angels sit inside the tomb, waiting on Jesus.
