This exhibition will compare and contrast several different pieces of art from the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter-Reformation. In particular, it will take a closer look at how Catholic art responded to the Protestant Reformation by depicting those teachings which were being challenged. Thus the art that is contained within this exhibition comes from the late Renaissance and Baroque era. However, it will not simply examine the differences between these two categories of art but also delve deeper to analyze the content and attempt to understand the religious beliefs that created these differences we see. For while each of these two categories of art represent the theological views of two different religions, both played a vital role in the development of Western Art.
