Week Forty-Five: Storm

This week’s topic will be Storm. A classical representation of tumult, both literally and figuratively, this topic will hopefully rain varied, stylized, thought-provoking imagery upon this blog.

The image presented here is the classic Christ in the Storm on the Lake of Galilee by Rembrandt. A master of light and shadow, Rembrandt’s image of the fishing ship tossed and overcome by waves speaks volumes about crests and troughs, clear skies and oppressive clouds.

Be sure to check back on Tuesday when the storm breaks.
