Trinity Church Sutton


This event was previously scheduled for 29 March but had to be cancelled on the day due to the lecturer’s indisposition.  We are pleased it has now been rescheduled.

This lecture is presented by Dr Chloë Reddaway.  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.

Tickets are £5, available on the door or online.
