From Bruegel's symbolic illustrations of contrasting states of sin and piety to Andy Warhol’s electric pop-art paintings, sin spans centuries of art.
Now, see sin in art at the first major exhibition of its kind in the UK at the National Gallery.
Running from 7th October 2020 – 3rd January 2021, the free exhibition explores the complex theological ideas and depictions of ‘sinful’ everyday behaviour that blur the boundaries between religious and secular art.
Bringing together 14 works from the National Gallery’s collection spanning 16th – 18th century, and loans from important private and public collections, including modern and contemporary works by Tracey Emin and Ron Mueck, this must-see exhibition this winter.
Sin is as universal as it is personal. Most people at some point in their life will do something they regret, although the gravity of their ‘sin’ very much depends on the socio-cultural context. While the perceptions and representations of sin extend across world religions and to those of no faith, this display will primarily explore sin within a Christian context.
Gallery doors are now open and tickets to this exhibition are free. To help ensure social distancing measures can be met, all visits must be booked online and in advance.
