Plaque with the Resurrection of Christ

Description Provenance Credit
Description The Latin text on the bottom inscribed in gilt reads, "Christ, rising from the dead and returning to heaven, triumphs over Satan, lord of this world, through His love for mankind." Based on an engraving dated 1588 by Anton Wierix (ca. 1555-1604) after the Flemish painter Martin de Vos (1532-1603), this plaque, with its original frame, is a companion to Limosin's "Plaque with the Annunciation" (44.346). Together they mark the beginning and the end of Christ's earthly existence.
Provenance Formerly in a ch√Ęteau near Montauban, France; Henri Daguerre, Paris [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1928, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1928
