Heaven on Earth: Painting and the Life To Come

Heaven on Earth: Painting and the Life To Come


Tracing the representation of heaven throughout the history of art, the art historian T.J. Clark offers a compelling narrative of how depictions of a Christian afterlife developed throughout the centuries, and probes the influences and questions that lay behind them.

With in-depth studies of Bruegel's gentle The Land of Cockaigne to the apocalypticism of Picasso's Fall of Icarus, this study delves into how life is transfigured for better (or worse) in the artistic heaven of Giotto, Bruegel, Poussin, Veronese and Picasso.
