Easter will be upon us soon, and what better way to celebrate then by examining Jesus in all of his many forms. Artists for centuries have captured their perception of Jesus and who he was. From Renaissance art times to Modern art, Jesus continues to be expressed and celebrated by the artists who perceive his uniqueness.
Here are a few famous portraits of Jesus.
This stunning portrait of Jesus by self taught artist Akiane Kramarik (then 8 years old) who sits next to her portrait of Jesus, called ‘The Prince of Peace.’ She is a self-taught painter. She states that God spoke to her when she was four years old, encouraging her to draw and paint her visions. Her parents were atheists at the time (they later converted to Christianity because of Kramarik’s paintings and visions). She began to draw at the age of four, advanced to painting at six, and began to write poetry at seven. Her first completed self-portrait sold for US $10,000. Kramarik donates a portion of the revenue from art sales to charities.
