My Favorite Picture of You

Delacroix’s Christ on the Sea of Galilee

Gospel Scene

He and the twelve get into several small boats and take to sea. As they cross, a great windstorm arises and threatens to throw the boats under the waves. Jesus lies in the stern of his boat, asleep on a pillow.

“Only Delacroix and Rembrandt have painted the face of Christ in such a way that I can feel him. . . .”
—Van Gogh
