A Broken Beauty

"A Broken Beauty examines recent ideas about beauty and the human image in light of the Western Classical and Christian traditions of the human figure. The book's five essays trace the historical fusion of Classical and Christian ideas about beauty, as well as their rejection by much modern art, provocatively suggesting that the difficulties encountered by the beautiful in modernity may be related to a loss of faith." "This volume culminates in a look at fifteen postmodern North American artists whose haunting pieces unite brokenness and beauty in a way that is uncommon within contemporary art. These artists, like the book's essayists, find significance in beauty that is cultivated amidst the perennial human struggle for goodness, meaning, and dignity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
