My artistic mentors are depicted here. The Renaissance artist Fra Angelico, known for the depth of his devotion, provides inspiration for Georges Rouault, described as the greatest Christian artist of the twentieth century.
The tradition of image-making in the church has formed our visual imagination, influenced our theology, and aided our devotion. Liturgical art serves to draw back the veil that separates the visible and the invisible. It enhances our fellowship with saints in the present and helps us draw near to the cloud of witnesses that surrounds us.
