"No account of 20th Century British art can overlook the numerous works of the period that were essentially religious in their content. Art, Faith & Modernity examines this question in Paul Liss and Alan Powers essays and demonstrates the wide range of expression in more than 175 colour reproductions. Anchored by Alan Powers defining essay, Art Faith and Modernity presents a poignant argument both visual and cerebral for a reassessment of the important place that religious art continued to occupy in 20th century Britain. Art, Faith & Modernity is part of Liss Llewellyns on-going programme of exhibitions, produced in partnership with museums and cultural institutions, which seeks to reappraise some of the unsung heroines and and heroes of Modern British art. Which artists in British 20th century art painted religious images? Broadly speaking there seem to have been two categories: The first concerns artists who created religious images when the religious content was in response to a set subject, for example The Deluge in the 1920 Rome Scholarship in Decorative Painting, or who responded to a specific commission, for example Thomas Monningtons works for The Ormond Chapel, Bradford, Kippen Church and Stations of the Cross for Brede Church in Hastings. The second category concerns a small minority off artists who were committed believers such as Frank Brangwyn, Eric Gill and Stanley Spencer. No account of 20th Century British art can overlook the numerous works of the period that were essentially religious in their content. Art, Faith & Modernity examines this question in Paul Liss and Alan Powers essays and demonstrates the wide range of expression in more than 200 colour reproductions." -FirstSearch.
