E75 – Tribute of the emperor’s coin
“And he asked them, “Whose image is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. Then he said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” (Matthew XXII, 20 – 21)
The rifle and sleeve of Christ in a straight vertical line divides this engraving in two. The left hand of Jesus invades Caesar’s domain, only to stop the coin that wants to invade the domain of God. Jesus points to the stern Romanesque temple, dark as faith, in contrast to the sunny capitol. We also see the characters of the financier (showing the coin), the newspaper editor, and the soldier who smiles mockingly.
This work was made in Totoral (Argentina) between the 7th of September and the 16th of November 1939.
