The Return of the Prodigal


This painting by Rembrandt is described by art historian Kenneth Clark as “a picture which those who have seen the original in Leningrad may be forgiven for claiming as the greatest picture ever painted”. If you look closely at the Father’s two hands you will see that they are different. One of the hands is modelled after a man’s and the other after a woman’s hand. This shows in a beautiful way the tenderness and strength of our Father God.
