Holy Trinity

The Trinity with the Holy Souls in Purgatory
Corrado Giaquinto, c. 1743 Italy


I've posted this amazing picture before. I'm proud to say it's home is here in Minnesota at the Minneapolis Institute of Art. This is one of my favorite works of art. I have not seen an image of the Holy Trinity before that depicts Jesus dead. Also the facial expression of the man in the purgatorial flames in the bottom left - sublime.
