Published to accompany the Easter exhibition at Piano Nobile, London and Monnow Valley Arts, Hereford, this catalogue illustrates a powerfully spiritual collection of art gathered from the Methodist Church Collection of Modern Christian Art and complemented by work of contemporary artists. Featuring work from artists such as Graham Sutherland, Craigie Aitchinson, Elisabeth Frink, Eric Gill and Greg Tricker amongst many others, this catalogue explores the representation of the crucifixion and eastertide in modern and contemporary British art, providing an artistic testament to the belief in something greater than ourselves. With a foreword by Sister Wendy Beckett, Risen! Art of the Crucifixion and Eastertide affirms the timeless endurance of Christian imagery in modern and contemporary British art.
