The sculpture, which retains much of its original coloring, illustrates the story of Doubting Thomas, an episode described in the New Testament gospel book of John. The apostle Thomas refused to accept that Christ had appeared to his other followers after the Resurrection, saying “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it.” Christ appeared to them again one week later and told Thomas “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” The sculptor has utilized the architectural form of the console to depict this story. On the left, Thomas, his head now broken, places his finger in Christ’s wound; Mary Magdalen, to whom Christ also appeared after the Resurrection, stands behind him. The apostle on the other side of Christ is Saint Peter, who holds the key to heaven. The remaining figures are apostles who serve as witnesses to the miracle. The figure of Christ originally carried a cross-staff, symbolizing his victory over death. [Gallery label text, June 2013]", "Dedication" : "R. T.

He soon moved beyond the style of Impressionism and began building form with color to paintings that were more analytical than sensory. He frequently painted scenes of the small town of L’Estaque in southern France, where he lived and worked periodically from 1870 to 1885. In an 1876 letter to his friend the Impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, he wrote of his work in L’Estaque: "I have started two little motifs with a view of the sea…red roofs over the blue sea…The sun is so terrific here that it seems to me as if the objects are silhouetted not only in black and white, but in blue, red, brown and violet. I may be mistaken, but this seems to me to be the opposite of modeling." In this painting, he uses interlocking shapes of bright color and diagonal brushstrokes to create the sensation of volumes in the foliage, mountains, and water. [Label copy from Monet: Vision and Process exhibition, 2018] Cézanne's artistic goals developed through his contact with the Impressionists. Although he was not interested in rendering particular momentary impressions, he wished to record his "sensations" of nature. This painting typifies his technique-- suggesting form and volume through interlocking shapes that are rendered with bold, diagonal brushstrokes. The bright colors deftly evoke the strong light and crystalline atmosphere of southern France.
