A peek into the Orsay Museum

There is one image from the Orsay museum, which we visited on Thursday afternoon, that Clarke wanted to share. It is by Swiss artist Eugène Burnand, painted at the end of the 19th century.  Peter and John are rushing towards the empty tomb on Easter morning.  If you click the picture to see an enlargement, notice the facial expressions, especially the eyes.

The Disciples Running to the Sepulchre painting by Burnand

Eugène Burnand, The Disciples Running to the Sepulchre, 1898. Erich Lessing/Art Resource, NY. Musée d’Orsay, Paris.

Photographs were not allowed in the museum. This example was found on BYU’s website.
