The problem with most depictions of the Resurrection is that they are too literal, if you can say that about something so without precedent – Christ often ‘floating’, the empty tomb, angels etc. Perugino did several, Bellini (see this on the excellent Idle Speculations blog), and probably the most famous of them all, by Piero della Francesca, Huxley’s ‘greatest picture in the world’ . Eugene Burnand was a French-based Swiss painter, linked to the Realist school of the time.
Hence when you look at the above painting, he’s got the faces just right. Something is happening which will change everything, forever.
