Jean-Gabriel Daragnes (French, 1886-1950)
Judas Kiss
Wood engraving; 1945
For: La Passion de Notre Seigneur Jesus Christ

Daragnes was a major force in the development of the fine art book in France.  The Passion of Our Savior Jesus Christ is a beautifully designed book with original prints.  It was created as an act of purging (or penitence) for the suffering of the people of France during World War II..
