Death and Resurrection in Art

Death and Resurrection in Art


This Christian art book presents a gloriously illustrated exploration of 3,000 years of the iconography of death and resurrection in world art.

As one of the unavoidable realities of human existence, death is also one of the oldest and most common themes in art. From Egyptian tomb paintings and battles scenes on Greek vases by anonymous artists, to depictions of the crucifixion of Christ by Renaissance masters, to contemporary encounters with these subjects by artists such as Damien Hirst and Andres Serrano, this new religious art book examines three thousand years of the iconography of death and resurrection.

While focusing on the Western artistic tradition, this Christian art book also looks at many works of art from Asia, Africa, and Oceania as it explores depictions of death and resurrection - including violent death, ceremonial tributes to the departed, allegorical depictions, and the journey to the afterlife.

This religious history book is one of many art books available from the National Gallery, which include art history books, art exhibition catalogues and gift books.
