The Appearance of Christ to Mary Magdalene after the Resurrection

I wasn't familiar with this artist before, thanks! Love the lighting in the top painting. The one on the bottom certainly tells a story! It's always interesting to find out all the hidden meanings behind the gestures and symbols in old paintings such as these.

Happy A to Z! :)
