Our previous event took a slightly different form through an excursion to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and a meal at the IMA Café on site. A docent–led tour of the art museum helped us discover how the Christian religion has used images and symbols in its art to educate and inspire. Highlights included two versions of the entry of Christ into Jerusalem: a Spanish fresco from about 1125 and a dynamic, Flemish oil by Anthony van Dyck, painted around 1617.

Indianapolis+Museum+of+ArtAlso contrasted were two examples of the crucifixion: an Italian tempera on a wood panel by Barnaba Da Modena and a German oil on wood painted by Lucas Cranach the Elder in 1532. Cranach made numerous painted and engraved portraits of Martin Luther, who was his close friend, and he also provided woodcut illustrations for Luther’s German translation of the Bible.
