Art by James Tissot

After our Thursday night Service of Tenebrae (April 9,2009) a few people asked me about the paintings that accompanied the Scripture texts. Almost all of it was created from paintings by James Tissot, a 19th century French painter. The Brooklyn Museum has a web site where you can link to or download almost 400 images from Tissot’s “The Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ.” I’ve linked to a few of them below. I’ve also prepared a zip file of the Scripture slides from Thursday night (Mark 14 and 15) that can be unzipped and used as a devotional slide show on your computer. Warning – large file: Mark14and15
