The Apparition of Christ to the People

One lazy afternoon in Moscow, the wife, father-in-law and I decided to take a walk down the Malaya Ordynka and later found ourselves at the Tretyakov State Gallery – a museum which has more than 170,000 art works by Russian artists.

The Apparition of Christ to the People or The Apparition of the Messiah is a painting by Alexander Andreyevich Ivanov, at 5.4 meters high and 7.5 meters wide, is an oil painting on canvas.

Here is the same painting on Priya’s Instagram. Which is a much better photo as the people at the museum look like they could be a part of the painting.
