The Face: Jesus In ArtJesus Christ is arguably one of the most pivotal individuals in all of history. Certainly, no single figure has had a greater influence on global art and culture during the last 2000 years. For centuries, the most important artists were painting and sculpting images of Jesus, and their work has had an immeasurable influence on the world's aesthetic today.
The Face: Jesus in Art traces the dramatically different ways in which Jesus has been represented in art by people throughout history and around the world. Take an up-close look at Michelangelo's Pieta and the revered Mandylion of Edessa; examine the Chartres Cathedral and journey across the Sinai desert to glimpse the Byzantine icons of St. Catherine's monastery; climb the stairs of St. John of Lateran, and descend deep into catacombs beneath Rome to see the earliest images of Jesus, captured by the light of lanterns and candles. An unprecedented travelogue of art and monuments from the early 3rd century to the present, The Face: Jesus in Art takes viewers from ancient Rome to 20th-century America , from Europe to the Middle East, to illuminate the most beautiful and spectacular representations of Jesus and his stories.
