E97 – Jesus call
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew XI, 28 – 30)
An engraving specially made as an insert for the deluxe edition of Los quarto Evangelios published by Guillermo Kraft. Beneath the horizontal line formed by the arms of Jesus are all those who are weary and burdened. They seem to support or raise the arms of Christ as if magnetically attracted to verticality. Delhez has used the same molded head as a model for all of them, each of them is a Christ is the message.
This work was made in Chacras de Coria (Argentina), the sketch date is unknown, but the work was finished on the 14th of September 1944, it also smaller (20 x 25 cm) than the other works in the Gospel series.
