'WORLD' Cover Story on Art

Recommended Posts

Gene Edward Vieth's cover story gets better as it goes. I think he's strongest when dealing with the Reformation and post-Reformation, although, admittedly, those are big interests of mine. An excerpt:

"Far from mandating that all art must be religious art, the Bible tends to be suspicious of religious art. Art that is "secular" is almost safer. The Tabernacle and the Temple were adorned not with images of deities but with depictions of nature

That DOES look good. Not a fan of WORLD, but I think Veith is quite the best they have over there.

Vieth recently wrote an excellent book about the Hudson River school of painting (Cole, Church, etc) and the faith underlaying their art. I bought it last year and have enjoyed it very much.
