Francisco de Zurbaran gave us The Lamb of God, c. 1635-1640, now housed in San Diego. This special outing takes you through to God equalling the human heart. Recently shown in Ferrara, Italy this extraordinary painting takes you to the lamb of God. He is represented elsewhere in the Ghent Altarpiece, the altarpiece was commissioned by van Eyck, premise thought to be completed by his more famous brother Jan van Eyck, the painting is also called the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb or The Lamb of God. The Zurbaran painting finished the first room of the exhibition with the sweetest feeling you could know in your heart, love, the love of God.
