Risen Christ Triptych Peter Paul Rubens

Usually I post art that I like.  This is not one of those times.

Now I love Peter Paul Rubens’ art.  There is a sensuality in his paintings that is vastly different than chaste Renaissance paintings.  But the whole Super Sexy Jesus vibe is just weird.

This is a triptych, combination of three paintings (a large one in the center and two small ones on the side) which is common above altars in churches.  According to Wikipedia, the  saint on the left is st. John the Baptist and on the right is St. Martina.

Happy Easter!
