Abstract The most iconic face in art over the past 2,000 years has been that of Jesus. As the central figure in Christianity, he has been a source of comfort and support to followers around the world. In The Face of Jesus, art historian Edward Lucie-Smith traces Jesus’s life through famous works of art, both ancient and modern, by such artists as Piero della Francesca, Leonardo da Vinci, El Greco, Rembrandt, Georges Rouault, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Covering Jesus’s life from birth to crucifixion, and finally to resurrection, The Face of Jesus is a beautiful collection of more than 300 images gathered in an accessible and intimate format.
