Johann Michael Ferdinand Heinrich Hofmann (March 19, 1824 - June 23, 1911) was a German painter of the late 19th to early 20th century. He was the uncle of the German painter Ludwig von Hofmann. He was born in Darmstadt, Germany and died in Dresden, Germany. He is best known for his many paintings depicting the life of Jesus Christ.
In this piece a rich young ruler came to Jesus to ask how he might gain eternal life. Jesus told him to obey the commandments, and the man replied that he had done so all his life. Jesus said, "You lack one thing; go, sell what you have, and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven." At this, the man's face fell and he went away sadly, for he had great wealth. And Jesus said, "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." (1889)
