Art, Faith and Modernity
A richly illustrated book exploring the important place that religious art occupied in 20th century Britain
No account of 20th Century British art can overlook the numerous works of the period that were essentially religious in their content. Art, Faith & Modernity examines this question in Paul Liss and Alan Powers essays and demonstrates the wide range of expression in more than 175 colour reproductions. Anchored by Alan Powers defining essay, Art Faith and Modernity presents a poignant argument both visual and cerebral for a reassessment of the important place that religious art continued to occupy in 20th century Britain.
The book features works by artists who created religious images in response to a set subject or who responded to a specific commission, for example Thomas Monningtons works for The Ormond Chapel, Bradford, Kippen Church and Stations of the Cross for Brede Church in Hastings as well as artists who were committed believers such as Frank Brangwyn, Eric Gill and Stanley Spencer.
