"Father, into your hands I commend my spirit."  (Luke 23:46)

Pierre-Paul Prud'hon, a nineteenth century French artist, carried the concept of tenebrism... using shadow and a little bit of light... to the nth degree in his painting titled 'Crucifixion'.

I would like to one day see his work at the Louvre as this image had become a powerful Lenten prayer for me in the hours of painting my version... this one.
