Happy birthday to American painter Max Weber (1881–1961). Born in Russia, raised in Brooklyn, Weber headed to Paris in 1905 and immersed himself in the city’s avant-garde, absorbing the work of Rousseau, Matisse, and Picasso. When he returned to the US in 1909, he became a major figure in introducing Cubism to a skeptical (at first) American public. This canvas from 1911 speaks to the revolutionary impact Cézanne had on Weber and his generation of artists.“Group of Figures,” 1911, by Max Weber

Today is Good Friday, the anniversary of Jesus’ death on the cross. After the Virgin and Child, the Crucifixion is the most common subject of Christian art, and numerous examples can be found in Italian painting, sculpture, and manuscripts. Whether as part of an iconic Crucifix or the focus of a narrative, the image of Jesus on the cross has been repeatedly reinterpreted by Italian artists to remind Christian viewers of Jesus’ sacrifice to absolve them of their sins. Complementary images include the Agony in the Garden, the Deposition, the Lamentation, and the Entombment. The centurion Longinus who pierced Jesus’ side was immortalized by Gianlorenzo Bernini as one of four monumental sculptures created to decorate the crossing of New St. Peter’s in Rome.
