The challenge of painting Christ is a uniquely complex one. How does one paint a figure who is fully human and fully divine in a meaningful way? In this lecture, Chloë Reddaway explores some of the extra-ordinary artistic responses with which Italian painters in the Renaissance met this challenge, and takes a fresh look at well-known paintings of Christ, discovering how surprising and deeply ‘strange’ they can be.
Dr Chloë Reddaway is a researcher in the Centre for Arts and the Sacred at King’s College London and McDonald Agape Theology and the Arts Research Associate at Duke University, NC. She is a former Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow and Curator of Art and Religion at the National Gallery, London.
