Item Description...
From Michelangelo to Salvador Dal, artists have been unceasingly drawn to the portrayal of Jesus Christ. But this 51-minute film points out that it wasn't until 320 years after his death that anyone attempted a depiction of the Christian savior. Producer, writer, and director Perry Wolff was nominated for an Emmy and won a Religious Relations Council award for this 1993 documentary, which provides the art history of Jesus Christ. Wolff gives viewers an eyeful of the dark, judgmental images of the early Eastern Church, the bejeweled and stained glass images of wealthy churches in later centuries, and the frescoes of the poor. Included are works of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance through the modern period, ranging from Leonardo da Vinci to Russian Jewish painter Marc Chagall. Wolff also takes a look at some of the African and Asian interpretations of Jesus Christ. For a final treat, the last few minutes are spent reviewing the recorded life of Jesus Christ through a breathtaking series of paintings throughout the ages. --Kimberly Heinrichs

While Jesus lived, no one made a record of His face. In His time, no one made a picture, nor a sketch, nor a painting. Since then every image of Jesus came from the minds and hands of those who lived after He died. Thus begins this fascinating film, produced by award-winning filmmaker Perry Wolff, which traces the evolving look of Christ from the first figurations from 320 AD of Jesus as an astonished shepherd boy, to the present day. This is the definitive art history of Jesus Christ. Wolff documents the wooden icons of the Eastern church. The stained glass windows of the great cathedrals. The fresco paintings of the poorer churches. Woodcuts on paper. Silk paintings from the east. Giotto's Lamentation... Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper... The Pieta... The Sistine Chapel... Michelangelo's The Last Judgment... El Greco's Allegory of the Holy League... The dead Christ by Paul Manet... Paul Gauguin's green Christ and yellow Christ... Marc Chagall's stained glass crucifixion... Pablo Picasso's crucifixion... Salvador Dali's Last Supper... Rembrandt's infant Jesus... De la Tour's sleeping savior... Tiepolo's three wise men who came to adore Christ... Jerome Bosch. Mantegna. Albert Durer. Lorenzo Ghiberti. Mantegna. Velazquez. Zubaran. William Holman Hunt. Titian. El Greco.

While Jesus lived, no one made a record of his face. No sketch, no painting, no photograph. The look of Jesus has been created by man. The face of every Jesus you see was made by someone's mind and hand. Famous artists... and unknown artists. From different places and different ages. For two thousand years the sacred mysteries of Christianity have inspired artists of every generation. The look of Jesus emerges from the history of art.

A Blend of Religion and Art  Jun 17, 2000
This documentary takes a chronological look at Christian artwork from its inception all the way through modern times. It is an outstanding blend of historical religious facts intertwined with beautiful artwork and art history. Visually breathtaking and mentally stimulating. I highly recommend it for any artist or Christian, or combination of the two.
