Jesus appears to falter beneath the weight of his terrible destiny, but for the solace of a compassionate angel. The painter, George Richmond, was influenced at an early age by Henry Fuseli, known for his emotionally intense, often nightmarish compositions. At sixteen he met the visionary artist William Blake, who reportedly left such an impression upon him that was left feeling “as though he had been walking with the prophet Isaiah.” With his friend, Samuel Palmer, he became a leading member of the “The Ancients;” a group of English artists, devoted to Blake, who yearned to recapture a lost golden age of pastoral innocence, governed by conservative Christian values.
