IN THE NAME OF THE SON: The Life of Jesus in Art

VITTORIO SGARBI    Book Number: 85061    Product format: Hardback

350 masterly colour images depict our Lord Jesus Christ suffering, in joy, anger, mercy, weakness, friendship, even whimsy. The book explores how the image of the Son, not the Father, inspired people and amplified the words of Scripture and levels of devotion unmatched in history. Vasari stated that Giotto was the first modern painter. We look at great artists who over the centuries have depicted the many stages of Christ's life from birth to resurrection such as Caravaggio, Mantegna, Cavallini, Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Leonardo da Vinci, Bellini, Michelangelo and numerous others, including contemporary painters and the somewhat sensual Cecco Bravo. A truly iconographic narrative. Heavyweight, 430pp. Colour illus. Remainder mark.
