Exhibition on Screen: Easter in Art, screened at Number 8, Pershore
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 explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day.
Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story, including Caravaggio, Leonardo, Raphael, El Greco, and Dalí.
“Anyone who has any interest in art … anyone who has any interest in visual culture … has to
be interested in the Christian story.” – Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times
Directed by Phil Grabsky.
