Widows and Orphans (1987)

Copyright J. Cobb

What is true religion? “Religion that is true and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world” (James 1:27). Christ himself warned us of judgment if we failed to help others (Matthew 25:31-46). This is an unusual composition: Why is the younger woman’s face turned away from the viewer?
