Artist Comments: This painting is a religious themed landscape painting portraying the cross in silhouette against a colorful evening sky. It is not to be taken as the literal representation of the crucifixion of our precious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Rather it depicts that moment in time just after the disciples took His lifeless body down from the cross.
The Holy Bible tells us about this momentous historical event throughout its pages. From Scripture we learn that Jesus Christ endured the crucifixion from approximately 9 A.M until 3 P.M. and that His dead body was removed from the cross just before sundown. Whereas, the four New Testament Gospels describe some kind of supernatural phenomena which occurred at the moment of His death.
From the four Gospels we learn…
- The Gospel of Matthew account mentions an earthquake, the opening of the saints tombs in the vicinity and the resurrected saints making an appearance in Jerusalem.
- The Gospel of Mark reveals how darkness spread throughout the land and the temple veil being ripped in two.
- The Gospel of Luke tells us Jesus was crucified with criminals and that the Roman soldiers mocked Him and cast lots for His clothing.
- The Gospel of John describes how the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and that Jesus was crucified at Golgotha which means the place of the Skull.
Calvary At Sunset is part of a series of oil paintings called the Christian Art Series.
