Heinrich Hofmann’s religious works are filled with the deep faith that inspired his life and creativity. Painting subjects from literature and mythology, Hofmann (1824 – 1911) is most famous for his paintings of Christ’s life. When his beloved mother died, he was motivated to paint his first large religious work, “The Burial of Christ.” Before painting any scene depicting Christ, Hofmann would intently study the Bible. He was adamant that anyone who was not moved to their innermost core while painting religious subjects was not capable of the task. Four of Hofmann’s most famous works now grace New York’s Riverside Church.
