RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK - 2nd Sunday of Lent

By Gregory & Ernest Disney-Britton
Denis Du Mikhaylov's "Transfiguration" (2015); acrylic on canvas;  59.7 x 90 cm
This past week, Ernest's surgeon immobilized him for 4-8 more weeks, but he also removed 11 stitches. Even in moments of darkness there is light. Just look up. On this second Sunday of Lent, and 25-days after Ernest broke his heel, we look at Denis Du Mikhaylov's "Transfiguration" (2015) inspired by Raphael’s “Transfiguration of Christ" (1516-1520). By anchoring this work in the past, the painter portrays our dark present (bottom) but also points to a divine future (top). That makes Denis Du Mikhaylov's "Transfiguration" our Lenten collector's pick of the week.
