Synopsis

Crucifixion by Phaidon Press, Editors of Phaidon Press

Crucifixion brings together more than 120 art masterpieces that depict perhaps the most important event in the Christian religion, the crucifixion of Christ. Ranging from the 5th century to the present day, the works represent a wide range of artists, styles, materials and cultures, and a variety of creative responses to this monumental subject.

Reviews

'This little Phaidon series ... has been executed with rare intelligence. The images (well produced) come from all over the world, supreme masterpieces rubbing shoulders with surprising and magnificently chosen obscurities.'
(Neil McGregor

, Director of the British Museum, World of Interiors)
