Eugene Burnand and The Greatest Easter Painting Ever Made | Crisis Magazine

Clicking on the attached link found below produces an excellent article by Elise Ehrhard in Crisis Magazine describing the Swiss painter Eugène Burnand’s late 19th century masterpiece The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Sepulchre on the Morning of the Resurrection. 

One writer has described this painting as a visual Lectio Divina since the observer cannot help but feel the joy, hope, and love of these disciples for the Lord. 

May you and your families experience an Easter season filled with the healing love of Christ.

  1. It is a stupendous painting. Although I would also cast my vote for Fra Angelico’s “Resurrection” and the ancient icon attributed to Rublev “The Myrrh Bearing Women at the Tomb”

    • Yes, I agree. We are so blessed to be able to view and ponder the Mysteries that these artists reveal to us.
      I pray that you and your family may experience the Lord’s many blessings during this Easter season.
