Presenter: Bill Ingham

Western artists portrayed the Madonna, the Annunciation, Christ and the Resurrection in countless different ways, emphasizing certain aspects which enhance and deepen our understanding of the Biblical story. What methods and resources, formal and compositional techniques went into these masterpieces? Why are they so convincing? Bill Ingham, Northwest artist and Epiphany parishioner, citing El Greco’s Disrobing of Christ (1650), Piero della Francesca’s Resurrection (1410) and Simone Martini’s magnificent Annunciation (1330), shows how each artist carefully devised and created these timeless paintings which remain so astonishing and persuasive today.
