Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Divine Inspiration
January 16 - July 14
Few individuals have exercised such a powerful grip on the Western imagination as Jesus of Nazareth. Believed by his followers to be the Son of God, he was central to religious life in Europe. Unsurprisingly, the defining moments of his life figure prominently in Western Art. The drawings and prints in this rotation will explore how various artists from the 14th to the 18th centuries interpreted the key episodes in Christ’s life.
