Photograph of a work by Ary Scheffer, a 1847 version of which is now in the collection of the Centraal Museum, Utrecht (Inv. no 9845). Inspired from the Last Judgment, the image depicts the Christ standing centrally, with his hands extended towards the crowd that flanks him.

Ary Scheffer (and his studio) continued throughout his life to produce new works of old compositions on demand. His paintings were also widely reproduced as etchings.
