About "An Illustrated Life of Jesus"
Drawn from several centuries of art from medieval to contemporary times, the majority of the 60 glorious full-color images and 34 black-and-white-etchings, woodcuts, and engravings reproduced here--all from the collection of the prestigious National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.--were created by Flemish, Renaissance, and Baroque masters. Richly reproduced, the works of art shown here include magnificently gold-leafed illuminated manuscripts, paintings on wood and canvas, glazed terra-cotta relief sculptures, intricate work in marble, metal-cut prints, bronze reliefs, and tapestries. Carefully selected to follow the narratives from the four Gospels, the accompanying discussions of the artist's interpretations of biblical events further an understanding and appreciation of these exquisite and moving works. Fully indexed to text, masterworks, and quoted scripture, this is a visually stunning reference and will be a treasured volume in the collections of all lovers of fine art.
