Description of obverse and reverse The obverse of the coin bears an image of the work The Disrobing of Christ, painted by Domenicos Theotocopoulos, El Greco between 1577 and 1579. The painting is held by the Primate Cathedral of Toledo. The reverse of the coin bears an image of the work The Trinity, painted by Domenicos Theotocopoulos, El Greco between 1577 and 1579. The painting is held by the Prado National Museum. The Disrobing of Christ (1577-1579) The obverse shows Christ looking up to Heaven with an expression of serenity. A figure in the background points at Christ accusingly, while two others argue over who will have his garments. A man to Christ's left holds him firmly with a rope and is about to rip off his robe in preparation for his crucifixion. At the lower right, a man bends over the cross and drills a hole to facilitate the insertion of a nail to be driven through Christ's feet. The radiant face of the Savior is violently juxtaposed to the coarse figures of the executioners, who are amassed around him. The Trinity (1577-1579) In the reverse, the Heavenly Father, with an Eastern Miter on his head, holds the body of Christ in his lap. The dove of the Holy Ghost appears over his head. Several cherubs' heads appear at Jesus' feet and under God the Father's robes. Based on an engraving by Albrecht Dürer, this was one of El Greco's first commissioned pieces in Toledo. The artist harmonizes the concepts of drawing and color respectively developed from Roman and Venetian perspectives.

Всегда знал, что через нумизматику можно изучить другие науки! Например живопись! Симпатичная монета!
