Fifth Friday of Lent

Honore Daumier, Ecce Homo (c. 1850)


  1. Fabulous painting for Lent, Claire. I've only just discovered Daumier after the retrospective on his work at the RA. I love how he was so sparse with this paint strokes, and managed to convey so much with so little. Less was definitely more with him. Have a lovely weekend, Bonny

  2. Such a heavy painting! Jesus' time is drawing near. May we never forget and always rejoice in what He did for us.


  3. Hahaha… I am such a slow-brained person! For weeks I have been wondering how you managed to find all these wonderful paintings, somehow relating to Lent. And only today I found out they are in the book 'God for us'…

    I love Daumier.


Thank you for taking the time to comment - I really appreciate it!
It's good to know I'm not alone :)
