Easter in Art

Special Afternoon Screening on Palm Sunday, April 2nd at 3 pm!

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film by the London-based film company that produces ‘Exhibition On Screen’ explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. We will visit the Vatican and some of the most prestigious museums throughout Europe and the U.S. for intimate viewings of iconic masterpieces by Caravaggio, Dali, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rubens, and Titian. (90 mins)
