Art is available in many places while we are confined, and this selection will introduce you to masterpieces from great institutions in the United States and in other countries.
This specially curated online selection of 20 well-known works is focused on the Easter story. Central to our Catholic identity, the Easter event offers great reassurance, comfort, and hope. Each work is imbued with a unique style and symbolism, with its own kind of presence. Yet collectively they all contain the pathos, intimacy, and delicate attentiveness to the body of Christ in the Easter drama.
We hope you can take time to experience joy in a sustained contemplation of these masterpieces, and be renewed by their beauty. In the meantime, wishing you health and hours of peaceful enjoyment!
