Easter Sunday (5)

Graphic: The Two Marys, William Holden Hunt (1847-1900)
Hunt explains in his memoris that he began this painting early in his career, but since he was then an atheist felt he could not complete it. His conversion to a personal form of Christianity, which is record in The Light of the World took place a few years later, but he did not take up this picture again until 50 years later.
