KEEPING FAITH - Konstantina Lois

This art gallery includes artwork based solely on the movement in religion. Religion is something that most people in this world practice. Within religion is art. There are many pieces of artwork with the Virgin Mary, Jesus, Deciples, Saints, etc. This art gallery includes many pieces of artwork within religion. I hope you enjoy this art gallery!

Ecce Homo, Unknown, c. 1500, From the collection of: Monastery of St. John the Theologian, Patmos, Greece
The first piece of artwork I decided to go with in my religion category is a piece of artwork illustrating a passage from John 19.5. This passage/artwork is referring to when Pilatus presents Christ to the crowd saying "Ecce Homo". In the photo, Christ's head is reclining. This shows the formal element being "Movement".
Joseph Receiving the Command of God to Flee into Egypt, Unknown, c. 1600, From the collection of: Monastery of St. John the Theologian, Patmos, Greece
In this photo you can see Joseph receiving the command of God to go to Egypt. The Esonarthex of the Katholikon was decorated around 1600. It has been decorated with wall paintings. Four large pieces of art cover the walls and vault. This artwork also shows the slaughter of innocent people. I believe this photo also shows the formal element of movement. There is a lot of movement just by looking at the photo. You can almost feel as if you are right there in the artwork. There is so much emotion and activity.
The Return of the Volunteer from the Wars of Liberation to His Family Still Living in Accordance with Old Customs (Die Heimkehr des Freiwilligen aus den Befreiungskriegen zu den nach alter Sitte lebenden Seinen), Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, 1833 - 1834, From the collection of: The Jewish Museum, New York
In this photo found at the Jewish Museum in New York you can see the Haskalah which resulted in the emancipation of jews. This painting is called The Return of the Jewish Volunteer. It is one of Oppenheim’s (Moritz Daniel Oppenheim, The painter) most significant paintings. This is also why I chose to include this piece of art in my art gallery. My main theme is movement in religion. Most of the painting/artwork I chose to present in my art gallery has a lot of movement.
Garland of Flowers with Madonna and Child, Daniel Seghers, First half of the 17th century, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
This painting is painted by Daniel Seghers. The painting is featured at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo. I thought this was a very interesting painting. Especially seeing that it is in Tokyo. The painting depicts escape from religious subjects. The painters in the Catholic Flanders combined this genre with religious themes. The genre being flowers and escape from religion.
The Last Supper, Marten de Vos, Undated, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
This of course, is a painting of The Last Supper. This painting is also found at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo. Painted by Marten de Vos. Marten was believed to have lived in Italy during the 1550s. There is some unproved suspicion that he may have also been around in Tintoretto’s workshop. This photo depicts the last supper with Jesus.
Triptych: The Crucifixion Flanked by the Kneeling Donor and His Wife, Joos van Cleve, First half of the 16th century, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
This painting is painted by Joos van Cleve. Also found at the national museum of western art in tokyo. This painting is thought to have been created by Joos later on in his life. The painting depicts the crucifixion of Christ with detailed landscaping and the donors kneeling before Christ. This is one of the reason I chose movement in religion. This painting is so powerful. It brings so many emotions to everyone.
Triptych: Rest on the Flight into Egypt, Joachim Patinir (follower of), c. 1515, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
Painted by Joachim Patinir, this painting depicts the Holy Family resting before their flight to Egypt. The holy family escaping to Egypt to run away from the persecution of King Herod. The two panels of the triptych depict scenes from the passion. They are thought to have been painted by other artists not by Patinir.
Christ on the Cross, El Greco (Domenikos Theotokopoulos, called), Undated, From the collection of: The National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo
This beautiful painting is painted by El Greco. El Greco created many painting of Christ on the cross. Including this one of course. Many of his paintings are seen as dramatic. The church in the painting is San Lorenzo Monastery which has been constructed in el Excorial by Phillip II.
The Religion, Innocenzo Spinazzi, [1794], From the collection of: Galleria Civica di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Torino
This sculpture was created by Innocenzo Spinazzi. It is featured in the Galleria Civica di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Torino. The figure of “Religion” is depicted in this sculpture. It was created for the tomb of the wife of prince Aleksandr Michailovic Belosel’skij. The wife being, Varvara Jakovlevna Tatisceva. This sculpture is so powerful.
Jerusalem X, Struck, Hermann, 1916, From the collection of: Leo Baeck Institute, Center for Jewish History
This painting is painted by Hermann and is featured at the Center for Jewish History at the Leo Baeck Institute. The painting is of Jerusalem. It is depicting the Dome of the Rock and cypress trees. This beautiful painting of jerusalem is empowering. I would say the element is space.
