EDITORS COMMENTS
The Conversion of Paul, 1515-17 (woodcut) captures the dramatic moment when Saul, later known as Saint Paul, experiences a life-altering event on the road to Damascus. This powerful woodcut by Hans Baldung Grien showcases his exceptional talent in capturing both human emotion and divine intervention. In this scene, we witness the intense journey of Saul, who was once a persecutor of Christians but is now confronted with a blinding light from heaven. The artist's use of chiaroscuro adds depth and intensity to the composition, emphasizing the contrast between light and darkness. The central focus of the print is on Saul's horse rearing up in response to the thunderbolt that accompanies his conversion. The animal's wild spasm mirrors Saul's own transformation from an enemy of Christianity to one of its most influential apostles. Grien skillfully depicts this miraculous event with great attention to detail - from the expressions on both man and beast to every strand of their hair. Through this woodcut, he invites us into a moment where faith triumphs over doubt and spirituality shines through even in our darkest moments. This print serves as a reminder that miracles can happen at any time or place - even on an ordinary journey along a dusty road. It encapsulates not only religious devotion but also speaks to our universal desire for redemption and transformation.
