Art on Sunday: The Four Evangelists

Jacob Jordaens (1593–1678)
The Four Evangelists, ca. 1625–1630
Oil on canvas
Jordaens, The Four Evangelists
Musée du Louvre, Paris

Happy All Saints Day! This painting does not show all the saints -- there are more than 10,000 canonized Roman Catholic saints, so it would be hard to fit all of them into one painting -- but the four it depicts are pretty important ones: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, who are said to be the authors of the first four books of the New Testament of the Bible.
