The Salvator Mundi, (painting)

Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 46
No. 46--"THE SALVATOR MUNDI." The young Christ with one hand on a globe, the other raised with a gesture of teaching. The rich, heavenly blue of the mantle contrasts beautifully with the pale red of the underdress. The long flaxen hair and mild blue eye, the delicacy of flesh tints, the beauty of the face and hands, and the brilliancy of the whole colouring, combine to make this representation of the youthful Saviour most appropriate and beautiful. [P. 30.]
