Christian Year in Painting John S Dixon

£29.99

The only book in print to present paintings of all the key biblical events in the Christian calendar by Old Masters from the early Renaissance onwards. The stories of Christianity and painting have been intertwined since at least the Middle Ages. The painters of the early, high and late Renaissance in Italy, Spain and northern Europe learned their art and craft while working in the service of both the Church and devout patrons, producing depictions of scenes from the Bible and the lives of the saints for the benefit and instruction of clergy and worshippers alike. This book follows a course through the Christian year – from Advent and the Christmas season, through Holy Week and Easter and the periods of Ordinary Time – to present thirty works celebrating the key events and festivals of the liturgical calendar by some of the bestknown names from art history.
