Geertgen tot Sint Jans biography

This work is linked to John 11:43

A panel typical for Geertgen, with somewhat naive characters and much attention for the landscape. The panel has been in the Louvre since 1902.

Jesus is tired of the lamenting of Lazarus' sisters and decides to wake the dead man.
