German School, The Harrowing of Hell (detail), c. 1600. Oil on panel, 78 1/4 x 52 1/4 inches (198.8 x 132.7 cm). Collection of the Nasher Museum of Art. Museum purchase, 2000.12.1. Photo by Peter Paul Geoffrion.

Free Slow Art Tour – The Harrowing of Hell - 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Enjoy art at a different pace. Instead of an exhibition overview, Slow Art Tours spend 30-45 minutes with a single work of art.

Saturday’s discussion will focus on the anonymous 16th-century German painting The Harrowing of Hell. This arresting painting depicts the moment when Jesus descends into purgatory, before the resurrection. In our example, the Lenten subject is paired with surprising imagery relating to the Counter-Reformation movement. Seating is provided and the discussion will be led by gallery guide Ruth Caccavale.
