Art, Faith & Modernity

No account of 20th Century British art can overlook the numerous works of the period that were essentially ìreligiousî in their content. Art, Faith & Modernity examines this question in Paul Lissë and Alan Powersí essays and demonstrates the wide range of expression in more than 175 colour reproductions.

Anchored by Alan Powerís defining essay, Art Faith and Modernity presents a poignant argument ñ both visual and cerebral ñ for a reassessment of the important place that religious art continued to occupy in 20th century Britain. Art, Faith & Modernity is part of Liss Llewellynís 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.
