Description of the artwork

In the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed, Christians confess that Christ is "Lumen de lumine", which means "light, born of light" to express that the Son is consubstantial with the Father, i.e. created of the same divine substance.
This very fine drawing was owned by Arthur Tooth, art dealer and owner of the Arthur Tooth & Sons Gallery in London. Originally specializing in 18th and 19th century paintings, the gallery had become a leader in the sale of Pre-Raphaelite prints, with locations in London, New York and Paris.
