Ascension in art

Ascension is a Christian holiday celebrated forty days after Easter (counting Easter Sunday). That’s why she always falls on a Thursday, usually in May. In the tradition and the Christian faith, it marks the elevation to heaven of Jesus of Nazareth after his resurrection and the end of his earthly presence.
