I brought the postcard of this painting home from the Musee D’Orsay. It sits on the shelf above my desk and my heart pings a little every time I look at it. According to my rusty college French, the title translates to something like The Disciples Peter and John Rush to the Tomb on the Morning of the Resurrection. Look at those faces, their simultaneous hope and anxiety. Rushing but almost reluctant. Their thoughts jump from the canvas: Please let it be.
