No. 25 Scenes from the Life of Christ: 9. Raising of Lazarus (detail)

Cappella Scrovegni (Arena Chapel), Padua

This scene is composed with the heightened effect of the gaze and gesture of Christ in mind. The rhythm of the individual gestures and the reactions of those present clearly show the energy which emanates from Christ.
