Catching up on peer reviews.
I realise this comment is super late so I do apologise for that.
I really like the painting you chose as it definitely has a heavy symbolic meaning behind it. I think you totally nailed what the artists intent was to show through the painting too. One thing that could add to your analysis of it is noting the colours used by the artist, for example, If you look at the figure of Jesus in the image he is very desaturated in comparison to the other figures, which I think lend nicely to your point about the “strain” felt by many people of that time.
I’m really enjoying your blog, keep up the good work!
