Christ in the Desert: Ivan Kramskoi, 1872

F&FW is making an occasional feature a regular feature, to wit: Sundays we will highlight a work of art. We will attempt, as here, to relate the work to the calendar. Monday we return to local food, news and bad, dad jokes.
First Sunday of Lent.
At that time Jesus was led by the Spirit
into the desert to be tempted by the devil.
He fasted for forty days and forty nights,
and afterwards he was hungry.
Gospel of St. Matthew 4:1
