Thursday's Three on Art

Today's Thursday Three brings you a trio of art-related videos. The first two shorts are part of a series of seven films titled The Audacity of Christian Art, which addresses the thought-provoking question, "How do you paint a figure who is fully human and fully divine?" The series from the National Gallery, London, is narrated by Dr. Chloe Reddaway, the museum's Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Curator in Art and Religion. The third short looks at the subject of art valuation.

✦ Part 1 is "The Audacity of Christian Art: the Problem with Christ".

✦ Part 2 is "Christ Is Not Like a Snail: Signs and Symbols".

✦ If you've ever wondered how paintings are valued, What Makes Art Valuable? (Documentary Guru) tries to answer the question.
