Christ Consoling the Wanderers


The French artist, James Tissot stopped by a church to make sketches when he had a completely unexpected vision. Later he tried to paint what he saw. This is one of the paintings he did. After this vision, Tissot changed his life. He went to the Holy Land and dedicated himself to painting scenes from the life of Our Lord and from the Old Testament.
