Happy Easter!

In the Orsay Museum in Paris, there’s a smallish painting by Eugène Burnand that really stands out for me. It’s Les Disciples Pierre et Jean courant au sépulcre le matin de la Résurrection (The Disciples Peter and John Running to the Tomb On The Morning of the Resurrection).

Pierre et Jean courant

I love the look of hope, and maybe a tiny bit of worry, on the faces of the apostles.

So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre. – John 20:4

One response to “Happy Easter!”

  1. Great piece of art. The look of worry in one’s eyes and the look of hope in the other are shown so clearly. It takes great skill to create such a thing.
