The Art of God: and the Religions of Art

The Art of God: and the Religions of Art

by David Thistlethwaite (Author)


The Art of God traces the progressive loss in the West of contact with, or faith in, a real created order, and discusses the manifestations of this loss in fine art. Making detailed reference to specific artists and works, Thistlethwaite shows how the diversity of our responses to modern art, as well as that of previous centuries, raises inescapably the question of truth.
