This sort of realistic painting, showing a triumphant Christ, is disparaged by the Art cognoscenti. Despite this it is very popular, and in fact Simon Dewey is one of the most visible religious artists of the late 20th century. Christ is risen; he is the Savior. The stone is rolled away, and darkness and death are behind him. Courtesy "Paintings of the Resurrection" http:/ www.bible-art.info/Resurrection.htm.
