Christ in art by Ernest Renan( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the dawn of Christianity, artists have been fascinated and stirred by the figure of Christ. His likeness appears in frescoes on the walls of catacombs that date from Roman times; he is featured in the stained glass windows of Gothic churches; and he can be found in various forms in today's pop culture. The Biblical Saviour is not a static, immaterial deity: Christ's mortal birth, unusual life and dramatic death make him an accessible subject for religious and secular artists alike. Whether they show the spirituality of God Incarnate or the earthly characteristics of a flesh-and-blood man, artistic depictions of Christ are the most controversial, moving or inspirational examples of religious art. This richly illustrated book explores the various ways that Christ is rendered in art, from Cimabue's Nativity scenes and Fra Angelico's paintings of the Crucifixion to the provocative portraits of Salvador Dalí and Andres Serrano. Author Joseph Lewis French guides the reader through the most iconic representations of Christ in art - tender or graphic, classical or bizarre, these images of the Messiah reveal the diverse roles of the Son of God in the social milieus and personal lives of the artists

Le Christ dans l'art by Ernest Renan( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in French and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La figure du Christ a, depuis toujours, inspiré les artistes. Déjà, dans les catacombes de l'Antiquité romaine, son portrait apparaissait sur les fresques murales. Plus tard, la vie du Christ se découpe dans les vitraux des églises gothiques ou se dessine sur les toiles des artistes de la Renaissance. Cependant, la figuration du Seigneur ne répond pas à une codification particulière et peut prendre, selon les artistes, des traits divers et variés. Qu'elles soulignent la spiritualité d'un dieu incarné ou les caractéristiques terrestres d'un homme de chair et de sang, les représentations nombreuses du Christ illustrent la fascination que ce dernier exerce sur les artistes, tant religieux que profanes. L'auteur, Joseph Lewis French, guide le lecteur à travers les représentations les plus iconiques du Christ dans l'art -- des scènes de la Nativité de Cimabue aux portraits provocants de Salvador Dalí ou Andres Serrano
Christus in der Kunst by Ernest Renan( )

Seit der Geburt des Christentums sind Künstler fasziniert von Christus. Sein Abbild erscheint auf Fresken in Katakomben aus der Römerzeit, auf Buntglasscheiben in gotischen Kirchen sowie in verschiedenen Darstellungen in der heutigen Pop- Kultur. Der biblische Erlöser ist keine statische, körperlose Gottheit: Christi Geburt, sein ungewöhnliches Leben und sein dramatischer Tod machen ihn zu einem interessanten Motiv für religiöse und säkulare Künstler. Ob sie die Geistlichkeit des Leibhaftigen oder die menschlichen Charakteristika eines Mannes aus Fleisch und Blut zeigen, künstlerische Dars
