Resurrection, c. 1940, Campion Hall, Oxford University
This painting is very similar to one of the same name bought by Schmitt’s good friend John Cavanaugh in the 1940s and now owned by the C. Michael Schmitt family. Schmitt’s great-granddaughter Bridget Skidd wrote of her discovery of this painting here.
“The Church keeps alive from day to day the tradition, the myth, which is eternally true. Without the memory of the fall from paradise and the Redemption, no apprehension of the Eternal happiness is possible to man.” (1960)
