Where Is Thy Brother? by Walter Rane


Oil on Board

39 x 29 in.


This painting embodies the emotion and devastation of the event. Both brothers' bodies are physically twisted representing the violence and disgust that had just taken place. There is an extreme intensity sent in the billowing clouds and in the burnt-red landscape, as if a fiery tempest is about to erupt. The storm mirrors both Cain's hatred and God's anger. The innocent sheep in the image are at their friend's side, declaring the truth of what had happened.
