The Image of Christ in Modern Art explores the challenges, presented by the radical and rapid changes of artistic style in the 20th century, to artists who wished to relate to traditional Christian imagery. In this highly illustrated book, Richard Harries looks at artists associated with the birth of modernism, such as Epstein and Rouault, as well as those with a highly distinctive understanding of religion such as Chagall and Stanley Spencer. Through a beautiful range of images and insightful text, Harries suggests that the modern movement in art has turned out to be a friend not a foe of Christian art, and that which is visual can in some way indicate the transcendent.
