Christ Triumphant over Sin and Death by Marten de Vos

I know nothing about the Flemish painters but I like them. They lack the drama and excitement of Caravaggio, but they have an earthiness and life that is very appealing.

Christ Triumphant over Sin and Death Marten de Vos

I read on Wikipedia that Marten de Vos was part of group of humanist artists called the Guild of Romanists. Perhaps that’s what I find so striking about this painting. I see his humanist philosophy coming through in his work.

Happy Easter!
