Dr Nigel Halliday tells the Easter story, and looks at how artists have portrayed its various elements. We will see how the power of art has been used to show the ongoing relevance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Images range from early Christian mosaics and sculpture, through the Renaissance and Baroque periods, up to the modern day. Along the way we see how artists choose particular scenes, and ways to portray them, that reflect the concerns and beliefs of their own age.
Dr Nigel Halliday is a freelance art historian, lecturer and teacher. He studied History of Art at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and then did a masters and a doctorate at the Courtauld Institute, London. He teaches the whole canon of Western art from Giotto onwards, but his main interests have been nineteenth- and twentieth-century art. He has also researched and lectured on Michelangelo and Rembrandt, and particularly the influence of Protestant belief on their work.
