Easter in Art Painting

Easter in Art

directed by Phil Grabsky

"EXHIBITION ON SCREEN™ is the originator and pioneer of bringing exhibition-based art films to the cinema.

The story of Christ's death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tacticle, some of western civilization's greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of all of us. 1hr / 25 min.
