Old Masters, 19th and Twentieth Century Art


16th C. Flemish Artist 

"Go and Sin No More"

From the Gospel according to John 8:1-11


This magnificent rendering of the story of the woman taken in adultery reveals a tranquil Christ unaffected by the nattering of the scribes and Pharisees, as he opts for mercy over their lawful demands for the ultimate punishment. The artist has skillfully contrasted the sorrowful contrition of the woman against the righteous anger of the men.
