Carl Bloch's Artwork


Over the weekend we as a family had the opportunity to see the art work of Carl Bloch that is on display at the BYU Museum of Art.  The art work was amazing and we were able to get so close you could see the brush strokes.  



His ability to use light and dark in his work is fantastic.  His portrayal of Christ from birth to his cruxifiction was breath taking. 


The alter pieces were awe-inspiring! It was a once in a life time opportunity that I so enjoyed.  Even my kids were impressed and asked loads of questions.  I would highly recommend that if you live in this area and are able to see this exhibit you will not be disappointed!  And it is free!!  Click the above link for information, tickets, and parking.  Then enjoy the work of the Master's Hand!
