Hoffman's "Christ in Gethsemane"
One of the most famous Christian paintings of the 1800s is without a doubt “Christ in Gethsemane,” by a German artist named Heinrich Hoffmann.
This painting has been reproduced and even copied by other artists time and time again.
As we celebrate Holy Week, we’re featuring some links where you can learn a little about this famous painting and the artist who created it. And we’re also featuring a time lapse video of See the Light’s chalk artist Jim Pence doing his version of Hoffman’s painting.
Scroll down for the links, and for Jim’s video, “Christ in Gethsemane.”
And have a blessed Easter.
He is risen!
He is risen, indeed!
