With Easter just around the corner, we wanted to share our most notable resurrection scene painting by Northern European artist Dieric Bouts. A fifteenth-century distemper painting on linen, the picture shows Christ triumphantly rising from the tomb, which is set in a vast landscape. Like pastel, distemper on unprimed linen is inherently delicate and its colors fugitive, which makes it all the more extraordinary that this early canvas has survived in such a remarkably well-preserved condition.

This painting was once part of a polyptych that was disassembled. By a very lucky coincidence, Los Angeles has another panel from the same altarpiece, The Annuncation at the Getty. You have to go to London to see The Entombment, also appropriate for just-pre-Easter.
