E77 – Footwashing

795

Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.  After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.” (John XIII, 3 – 5)

 

A live model was used in this engraving. According to Delhez, working with a model was the only possibility here to represent the poignant humanity, the concrete leading and the real sadness. A surrender to the abstract or the purely expressive suggests an evasion of the events – which took place in the pure material reality – and their transcendental character through which humanity was preserved.

This work was made in Totoral (Argentina) between the 14th of September and the 12th of December 1939.
