Read More: Look at Elisabeth’s painting. She is turned toward her husband. She offers him a flower. People nearly 500 years ago had their portraits painted by popular artists. The two paintings always hung together. But these two got separated years after the couple died. It took Ariane van Suchtelen nearly 16 years to find the painting of Jakob. The two now hang together again in the Mauritshuis art museum in Amsterdam. Matthew 19:6 reminds us about married people. “What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
