Sneak Peek of the Face of Jesus
“Jesus wept.” That singular sentence is one of the most moving sentences in history. It shows Jesus’ humanity. The Detroit Institute of Arts is the starting point and the ending point for an exhibit that highlights Rembrandt van Rijn’s affecting pursuit to capture this humanity: Rembrandt and the Face of Jesus. The DIA conceived of the exhibit, and then teamed with the Musée du Louvre, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art to compile important works to bring us an exquisite narrative of Rembrandt’s journey. The exhibit opens here this Sunday, but here is your sneak peek at the exhibit. I will provide a more substantive review this weekend, but I wanted you to enjoy these images as soon as possible.
