Doubting Thomas

Doubting Thomas


Caravaggio's "Doubting Thomas" is a masterpiece that exemplifies his unparalleled ability to convey raw emotion and dramatic tension through expert use of light and shadow.

Painted circa 1601-1602, the work captures the biblical narrative of Thomas, who doubts the resurrection of Christ until he physically touches the wounds.

Caravaggio's unparalleled skill is evident in the lifelike depiction of Thomas' doubt and astonishment, the play of light and shadow, and the almost palpable tension in the scene.

The interplay between the figures conveys a sense of humanity, doubt, and ultimately, faith, making "Doubting Thomas" a timeless and compelling portrayal of a profound moment in Christian theology.
