BEYOND BELIEF: MODERN ART AND THE RELIGIOUS IMAGINATION. Rosemary Crumlin et al. National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 1998. 208 pp. with 121 ills. (111 col.). ISBN 0724101993 In English.
Exploring the significance of broadly defined religious and spiritual themes in 20th-century art, this catalogue presents excellent illustrations and detailed examinations of 93 paintings, sculptures and other works by Ensor, Kandinsky, Beckmann, Ernst, Kollwitz, Chagall, O'Keeffe, Dix, Bacon, Kahlo, Newman, Beuys, Rothko, Mapplethorpe, Messager, Holzer and more than 50 other international artists, the pieces ranging from expressionistic treatments of biblical narrative scenes to contemplative geometic abstractions. Augmented by an interview with art historian David Freedberg, seven essays include discussions of the philosophical underpinnings of the aesthetics of the sublime, the changing role of spirituality in art as reflected in the transition from figuration to abstraction and the portrayal of women in modernist religious art.
