E90 – Resurrection

795

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.” (Matthew XXVIII, 2 – 4)

 

The resurrection is sometimes confused with ascension, but it is certainly not the same. Unlike ascension, the resurrection is a great event, so great that the ground trembles. The temple curtain tears. There is thunder and lightning in the darkness and the three guards swoon. Delhez has tried to express all this through the figure that shoots out of the grave as if propelled by an explosion.

This work was drawn in Totoral (Argentina) on March 7, 1940, but (according to our sources) it was finished and engraved in Mendoza on June 18, 1940. Presumably Delhez first stayed in Mendoza itself for a short time before moving permanently to the nearby located Chacras de Coria where he would live for the remaining days of his life.
