Showing scenes from the life of the Christ, created ca. 1530 in the style of the Dutch Renaissance. Probably from the Lower Rhine area.

@Japanalia: My pleasure. :-)
It's very difficult to avoid reflections on an oil painting. You did it well. The colours seem very accurate (the ones of the stone wall are perfect, so I assume all the painting ones are accurate also).

@B.Held: Looks almost like new.
Fabulous painting. Looks like you could make off with it.

@Twelvebit: That wouldn't be impossible, but why risk eternal perdition.
I suspect that the camera shows more than you see in standing there but a beautiful work for sure.

@Ronnie 2¢: See Sunday's shot, it's just hanging above your head. You would be able to touch it.

@MARIANA: Looks very fresh, yes.
So rich in deep colouration, but I'm pleased you included some wall from outside of the frame. I'm not keen on seeing the rephotographing of art so close that it is difficult to know "the truth". Your picture clearly tells us that you are appreciating a piece of art.

@Curly: I think you are right. :-) Thanks, Curly!
nicely shot - yes, the wall adds a lot!

@djedfre: The difference between a museum shot and a picture that is still in use and hopefully will be so for the next several hundred years.
