Is there any Christian art you like in spite of it being religious?
I came one class shy of having a minor in art history, but that was oh-so long ago! Of course, when studying art history you cannot avoid studying religious art.
There are many artists that I can appreciate in spite of their work having a religious them, but there is one painting in particular that I really like: “Madonna of the Harpies” by Andrea del Sarto (pictured above).
I would not have any Christian art in my home, of course, but I feel completely different about Hindu religious art, especially sculpture. I would definitely have that in my home. I love depictions of Kali and Ganesha. They are quite beautiful.
The Ecstasy of St. Theresa
is also a very incredible work of art, as is Michelangelo’s Pieta
There are numerous St. Sebastian’s that are very nice, too, including:
St. Sebastian, by Guido Reni
St. Sebastian, by Mattia Preti
St. Sebastian, by François-Guillaume Menageot
