There are so many striking images of the Passion of Christ that it is very difficult to choose. Last year I selected the Tenebrae from the Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry. This year, I invite you to gaze at the Lamentation for Christ, by that master of the German Renaissance, Albrecht Dürer.

Also, I brought back my post on 17th century religious art from Spain to the front page for the occasion.

Happy Easter!
