19th century oil painting on panel, Resurrection of Christ

Religious painting of the nineteenth century, the resurrection of Christ. Oil painting on panel depicting one of his most famous paintings in the manner of Rembrandt. In turn, the great Dutch painter was inspired for this composition by Titian's Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The Counter-Reformation had redefined the iconography and it was necessary to adhere to the letter to the sacred scriptures: Jesus will be taken into heaven 40 days after his death, for this reason the two moments, resurrection and ascension, should not be confused and must be represented individually. The Angel suddenly appears in the middle of the divine light and lifts the heavy stone of the tomb. The reaction of the soldiers in the face of the miracle is one of fear and fear, and this disordered flight gives the painting dynamism. The real protagonist, however, is the light opposite to the depths of darkness. 20th century frame in carved and gilded wood of beautiful decoration. Painting that has undergone a conservative restoration, palettes (see photo on the back) and color recovery in some points. Artwork in good state of conservation, with some signs of aging. Sight size H 54 x W 42 cm
