Christ Walking on the Waves

WAG 1995.214


A pen and ink drawing of the miracle of Christ walking on water. Christ is seen on the left with his right arm outstretched towards his disciples in the boat, on the far right, who appear alarmed. Their boat also appears about to be capsized in the storm. The pen strokes are bold and drawn with verve, with the figures' shapes and the waves emphasized in thick pen strokes to imply violent movements caused by the storm in the Sea of Galilee.
