At Jesus' Feet (Artist's Proof)
In this recent painting, based on Luke 10:38-42, Nathan Greene portrays Jesus teaching at the home of Martha and Mary. Jesus would later restore the life of their brother Lazarus. Martha was concerned about being a good hostess, conscious of her duties.
Christ's teachings spoke to the heart, cutting through the religious formalism of the times. Mary sits at His feet, listening to the words of life. "But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her." The warmth of Jesus' words and the concern for His friends comes through in this scene. The artist has paid particular attention to the pottery and details in the period clothing of the two sisters. At Jesus' Feet is one of Greene's finest paintings, rich in detail and emotion. It is a beautiful addition and conversation piece for any home.
This Artist's Proof is numbered, hand-signed and personally inspected by the artist. Historically, when reproduction of original art began it was common for an artist to pull several reproductions off a print run for family members, friends, and benefactors. As time passed this practice caused the creation of an artist's proof sub-edition. The print is identical to the limited edition print, but the numbering scheme is smaller, which adds value. When an edition sells out, artist's proofs are preferred by collectors.
