Worth a Thousand Words: The Resurrection

Matthias Grünewald, detail from Isenheim Altarpiece, c. 1515
I borrowed this from Lines and Colors where various images of the altarpiece and this resurrection image are featured. I agree that it is one of the most striking resurrection depictions ever. Simply fantastic.

  1. The crucifixion from this same triptych is especially grim so the contrast is very striking
