This is a good depiction of how we’re all probably feeling right now. 

Christ in the Desert by Ivan Kramskoi reflects the temptation of Christ. 

According to Biblical lore, the latter comes from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. After Jesus’ baptism, he was tempted for 40 days and nights by the devil. 

Most of Kramskoi’s religious paintings use cool tones to emphasize the tone of the scene.
