Due date: April 2018. Publisher's description: For thousands of years, the Jesus' life was the main inspiration for all the occidental artists. Then, with the repression of the religious sphere and the advent of democracies since the 19th century, the art left behind the sacred to become modern, impressionist, cubist, revolutionary, Dadaist. However, if Jesus is not the essential subject anymore, he is still highly present in the contemporary iconographic history. If he remains a guide and an example for millions of believers, he has also become a cultural icon, which has been reinterpreted or claimed by everyone. Here is Jesus' Premiere in contemporary art, graphic design and pop culture. Jesus in advertising. Jesus in South Park. Jesus in street art. Jesus as an American superhero comic book character or in Japanese manga. Jesus, star of a new pop art. Jesus, superstar of fancy art galleries.
