The Resurrection by Sandro Botticelli was produced in 1490 and remains one of several original Botticelli paintings on display at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, Canada

The artist concentrated on the Passion of Christ as a theme for a series of four frescos, one of which you can find here. Botticelli took in religious themes throughout his career but it was particularly later on that such scenes dominated most of his output.

The Resurrection of Jesus is one of the most significant beliefs of the Christian religion and therefore becomes an inspiring topic for artists during the Renaissance. Religion held firm during the early years of the Renaissance which occurred across the Papal States of Italy. Whilst this region retains its connection to the Christian faith, artists have moved on from the strong connection between art and religion.
