This week’s image, “If A House Be Divided Against Itself That House Cannot Stand” (c. 1978, courtesy of the Harvard Art Museum), is by Howard Finster (1916–2001), an American artist and a Baptist minister. Apparently Finster was captivated by Jesus’ declaration (Mark 3) that a house divided against itself can not stand; he produced a number of paintings and sketches on this theme.
