1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 45
"The principal figure is well composed, natural and graceful; the sympathising grief expressed in the action and features of the attending angels augments the interest excited in the mind of the spectator while reflecting on the sufferings of a redeemer. By the introduction of a lowering sky in a part of the back ground, we are to infer the earthquake to have subsided; the stone is already removed from the entrance of the sepulchre, and the winged messengers are on their knees, piously waiting the moment that our Lord should rise from the dead." [P. 9-10.]
