The Man of Sorrows by William Dyce. c. 1860. Oil on milboard, 13 1/2 x 19 1/2 inches. National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh. Barringer suggests that, like Pegwell Bay, this painting "deployed a rocky landscape to suggest challenges to a Christian interpretation of creation presented by the new, scientific understanding of geological time" (113).
