In this ninth episode, we study the Ghent Altarpiece by the 15th Century Flemish painter, Jan Van Eyck.
In this eighth episode of St. Luke’s Gallery, recorded on Pentecost Sunday 2021, we aptly study “The Pentecost”, an incredible oil painting by the 18th Century French painter, Jean II Restout.
Recorded on Easter Sunday 2021, we study this appropriate and notable work by the Russian painter, Alexander Ivanov, titled: Christ’s Appearance To Mary Magdalene After The Resurrection.
In this sixth episode, recorded on Palm Sunday at the start of Holy Week 2021, we study five works of art corresponding to the Five Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.
In this fourth episode, we study St. Joseph With the Infant Jesus, painted in the 1620s by Guido Reni.
In this second episode, we study The Annunciation from the American painter, Henry Ossawa Tanner in 1897. It’s a fitting subject as this is the posting in the season of Advent.
Hello and welcome to Saint Luke’s Gallery. The purpose of this site is to share my appreciation of sacred art with you, and hopefully persuade you to look at art in general, in a new perspective. One reason why I created this site is because we’re all looking at our computers, iPads and phones – especially now with so much of the outside world locked down. Unfortunately, a lot of what’s online is designed to provoke us, scandalize us and in the case of most social media outlets, dumb us down. I don’t know about you but I’d like to see more positivity and on that note, I hope you’ll enjoy this introduction and visit St. Luke’s regularly as I develop a series.
