The tears in painting, a symbol of pain or joy.
The depiction of tears in painting has been a frequent theme for centuries.
Associated with religious, mythological or secular figures,
tears symbolize human emotions, from sadness to joy to love, hate, gratitude or ingratitude …
The beauty of a tear …
A powerful scene ...
Jesus Christ on his agonizing journey to Calvary,
bearing the weight of the cross upon his shoulders.
The artist masterfully portrays not only Christ's physical pain
but also his unwavering determination to fulfill his divine mission.
Jesus addresses the viewer with a look of composed but intense pain,
His tear-filled eyes convey both physical agony and spiritual anguish.
Adding to the suffering a violent realism in this composition –
the guard grabbing grabs Christ's hair.
Lorenzo Lotto
Le Portement de croix
The Carrying of the Cross
1526

Exhausted, Christ looks at the viewer, a tear runs down his cheek, yet his glance radiates dignity
as he fulfils his destiny.
Surrounding him is a multitude of flamboyantly dressed characters, now helping him by holding
up the cross, now punishing him with lashes, like the man dressed in red in the centre.
The soldier in front of Christ, with a harsh and enigmatic expression, also addresses the
spectator and displays a crescent moon on his shoulder, evoking the Muslim enemy.
In the background, a delicate landscape, in which the sorrowful group of the Virgin and St. John
stand out in the distance, and as a climax, the city of Jerusalem, treated as a Nordic city.
Hieronymus Bosch Jérôme Bosch
Christ Carrying the Cross
Le Portement de Croix
1505-1507
Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Royal Palace of Madrid

Surrounding him is a multitude of flamboyantly dressed characters, now helping him by holding up the cross, now punishing him with lashes, like the man dressed in red in the centre. The soldier in front of Christ, with a harsh and enigmatic expression, also addresses the spectator and displays a crescent moon on his shoulder, evoking the Muslim enemy. In the background, a delicate landscape, in which the sorrowful group of the Virgin and St. John stand out in the distance, and as a climax, the city of Jerusalem, treated as a Nordic city. Hieronymus Bosch Jérôme Bosch Christ Carrying the Cross Le Portement de Croix 1505-1507 Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Royal Palace of Madrid
  • 10. Christ has his eyes open and silently feels the bitterness of death. Mary's face is one of desperate sadness, with large tears on her cheeks. Mary Magdalene ... more human, more sensitive, more expressive, She stands immobile. Seated at the foot of the cross, turns her face towards the observer as if she wanted to make him a witness to this unjust torture. Jacob Jordaens Crucifixion 1620 Musée des Beaux-Arts, Rennes
  • 13. The tears at the foot of the cross ... St. John and the three Mary's are overwhelmed with grief, John supports Mary who has fainted. Rogier van der Weyden Seven Sacraments Altarpiece, Christ on the Cross and the Eucharist Triptyque des Sept Sacrements, Crucifixion et le sacrement de l'Eucharistie 1445-1450 Musée royal des Beaux-Arts, Koninklijk Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Anvers
  • 17. serenity and resignation ... The central panel depicts a Pietà. The Virgin's face is covered in tears, echoing the drops of blood flowing down Christ's body. The instruments of Christ's torture are depicted at either end of the panel: the column on which he was scourged, the spear with which the Roman soldier Longinus pierced his right side after his death on the cross. Maître du retable de Stauffenberg Master of the Stauffenberg Altarpiece Stauffenberg Altarpiece, Descent from the cross Retable Stauffenberg, Descente de croix 1450s Musée d'Unterlinden, Colmar
  • 19. The body of Jesus has already been removed from the Cross … Dramatis Personae of the tragedy (from left to right): Mary Cleophas (half-sister to the Virgin Mary), John the Evangelist, Mary Salome (in green, another half-sister of the Virgin Mary), The Virgin Mary, the corpse of Jesus Christ, Nicodemus (in red), a young man on the ladder, Joseph of Arimathea (in field-of-cloth-of-gold robes, the most sumptuous costume), the bearded man behind Joseph holding a jar, Roger van der Weyden The Descent from the Cross La Descente de Croix 1435 Museo del Prado, Madrid
  • 26. and ... Mary Magdalene who adopts a dramatic pose on the right of the painting. Fingers tightly clasped in a gesture of prayer, is about to fall at the feet of Christ, those same feet she had once so lovingly anointed with oil and dried with her own hair, and that are now bloodied and dead.
  • 28. The dead body of Christ carried by two men. John the Evangelist, wears a red cloak, Joseph of Arimathea, is dressed in a black doublet Mary stands between them, bending over her dead son weeping and taking hold of his left arm. On the left in the background, Mount Golgotha is depicted with the three crosses on it. Quinten Massijs The Lamentation of Christ La lamentation du Christ 1515 Museum M Leuven, Leuven
  • 32. The staid, restrained grief of the Mary and John .... the rigid body of the Christ held and supported in the lap of his mother, Mary. John the Evangelist in red Mary Magdalene kneels, wrenching her hands in a gesture of grief. Dirk Bouts La Déploration du Christ The Lamentation of Christ 1455-1460 Musée du Louvre, Paris
  • 34. This work sparked controversy and confusion among viewers ... angels dressed in red and orange (Bible verses describe angels dressed in white), Jesus's spear wound is shown on the wrong side of his body (which Manet realized only after he had submitted the painting to the Salon), the weeping angel has the low look and is far from the Christ But a new champion of Manet, Emile Zola, was particularly attracted by this work: "Were are told that this Christ is not a Christ, and I admit that may be so. As far as i am concerned it is a corpse, painted boldly and vigorously, with the light full on it. I even like the angels in the background - children with great blue wings.“ Édouard Manet Le Christ mort et les anges The Dead Christ with Angels 1864 Metropolitan Museum of Art, Manhattan, New York
  • 37. Christ is placed into the tomb.

  • 66. The depiction of married couples before their wedding night was very popular in the Netherlands. This painting is a satire on the subject. The bride, depicted at an advanced age, is weeping bitterly, while the bridegroom is trying to console her. The bride is afraid of the wedding night ...

The chamber pot was part of the marital bedroom (it is often found in 17th-century Dutch genre paintings) and thus becomes, for the bride, a vestige of the loss of innocence. The wreath of ripe cherries on the old woman's head is an ironic mockery of the image of the bride.
