Synopsis: How artists from Giotto to Caravaggio have written a visual biography of Christ through the finest masterpieces in the history of art. In the Name of the Son approaches figurative art through the lens of the greatest mystery of mankind: the life of Jesus Christ. From the late medieval period through the Renaissance and the Baroque era, the task of conferring an image onto Christ—whose physical aspect was never described in Scripture—fell to artists, who depicted him at every stage of life and in a multitude of roles. In the 350 images in this lavishly illustrated volume, Vittorio Sgarbi considers the variety and power of these portrayals: depictions of joy, suffering, anger, surprise, unmistakable judgment, mercy, weakness, gentleness, friendship, and even whimsy. The result moves beyond art to explore how it was the image of the Son, and not the Father, that amplified the words of Scripture and inspired levels of devotion that have been unmatched in human history.
About the Author: Vittorio Sgarbi is an art critic, politician, and scholar. He was the minister of culture of Milan from 2006 to 2008, and has curated numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad, including the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011.
