Solar Eclipse 2015 part 2

This painting by Pieter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) called the lance thrust  also shows the solar eclipse during Christ’s crucification. Its a very dramatic interpretation of the story. As usually Rubens colors are very vibrant and there is plenty of action.

This painting shows the Solar Eclipse on July 8, 1842 by Jacob Alt (1798-1872).

Jacob Alt painted mainly landscapes so he mainly shows the beauty of the solar eclipse rather than focusing on biblical meanings.

Im still kinda disappointed to not have seen the solar eclipse but I loved these paintings of solar eclipses that I found in stead.
