Christ Washing the Feet of Saint Peter Artist: Sadao Watanabe Description: A bold and most impressive rendering of John 13.6-II. Watanabe uses the device of elongated hands, fingers and toes and the large eyes of Jesus to stress the importance of this symbolic act; this device is reminiscent of early medieval book illuminations, a period when strong, religious fervor also inspired great Works of Art. Wonderful patterns and harmony of colors within clear, strong lines further enrich this fine Print, one of the best of Watanabe’s Work. Issued: 1973 Medium: color stencil on hand crumpled momigami paper Edition: 49/70 Condition: Excellent. Image Size: 26 x 22 1/2 inches Framed Size: unframed Signed: in white ink: Sadao Watanabe
