This groundbreaking classic, now reissued, gives a brilliant perspective on the cultural turmoil of the radical sixties and its impact on today's world, as reflected in the art of the time. It describes the social, historical and philosophical context of modern art and culture from a Christian perspective, including much valuable material on Western European art from the Renaissance onward.

^A respected jazz critic as well as Professor of Art History at the Free University of Amsterdam, Rookmaaker moves freely between the worlds of high culture, popular art and music and Christian faith.

H R Rookmaaker

Henderik Roelof "Hans" Rookmaaker (1922–1977) was a Dutch Christian scholar, professor, and author who wrote and lectured on art theory, art history, music, philosophy, and religion. Throughout his career, he lectured in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada, as well as in his native Netherlands.
In 1948 he met Christian theologian Francis Schaeffer and became a member of L'Abri in Switzerland. Hans and his wife Anky opened a Dutch branch of L'Abri in 1971. In 1962, he wrote a book for fellow church members titled Kunst en Amusement (Art and Amusement). The book was an invitation for Christians to begin taking art seriously.


His main thesis was laid out in his 1970 publication entitled Modern Art and The Death of Culture. Two books by Rookmaaker were published posthumously: Art Needs No Justification in 1978 and The Creative Gift : Essays on Art and the Christian Life in 1981. In 2003 The Complete Works of Hans Rookmaaker, edited by his daughter Marleen Hengelaar-Rookmaaker, was published
