I think this painting is about when Jesus came back from the dead and revealed himself to the people and how happy they were when they saw he was back. The medium is oil on canvas. I chose this because it is a good example of how the people reacted to Jesus' resurrection. The style is a historical painting it shows one of the important moments in Jesus' life. The artist Aleksander Ivanov, worked twenty years on this work and it was considered his greatest. The mood was a happy joyous mood.
