"Head of Christ"
OHIO - For the 44th time, a celebration will take place to remember the life of famed artist Howard Chandler Christy. Christy's high-fashion "Christy Girls" were known all over the world. Later in his life, Christy underwent a religious conversion and devoted the closing years of his life to painting Christian subjects. An inspiring painting by Christy, titled "The Christ," is owned by the United Methodist Church and hangs in the church's headquarters in Nashville, Tenn. [link]
