Return from Calvary – Schmalz

This expressive painting displays the Blessed Mother Mary returning home after the Crucifixion of Jesus. St. Mary Magdalene and St. John accompany the Sorrowful Mother. Saint John's backward gaze draws the viewer's eye to the rear of the painting, where, barely visible in the far-right corner, the three crosses on Mt. Calvary still stand. Artwork by H. Schmalz
