"Herzliebster Jesus"/ Oh, dearest Jesus ...

 

a detail of Matthias Grünewald's Isenheim Altar in Colmar, Unterlinden Musée- now Dominican church. Mary, mater dolorosa, stands beneath the crucifix. I was very touched by the expression of her hands; they express her despair and sadness considering the death of her son, and at the same time they are a gesture of prayer and adoration. 

 

Thank you kindly for yesterday's comments!

Sorry, today I don't have any time to comment and to reply on your comments, because I'm on way to Hamburg (fruit trees in 'Altes Land').

Enjoy your trip. it is always beautiful to see the trees in full bloom.
I found the painting Matthias Gothart Grünewald online that you mentioned Philine... your photo of the mothers hands wrenching in prayer and agony is superb... but the entire painting itself is magnificent....peter
Hands always tell such a story, Philine. I can see why you were attracted to these!

Typical Grunewald trademark fingers Philine. A really great artist in my book.

An inspiration to so many artists. Here the hands implore in a truly expressive way - and intertwining fingers are the hardest to paint!

I can remember making hand gestures like this when I was younger. It's a very good painting. Enjoy your trip to Hamburg.
I agree with your reading of this.
