Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Saints and Sinners

January 15 - July 12

Saints and sinners have always provided Christians with examples of how they should or should not behave. Whether leading an ascetic life in the service of God or enduring torture and gruesome deaths, saints gave devout Christians models of piety and fidelity. In contrast, the wickedness of sinners from the Bible reminded them of mankind’s weaknesses and the need to avoid temptation. This selection of works on paper demonstrates how artists developed an extraordinary range of stylistic means to represent the righteous deeds of saints and the disreputable behavior of sinners.
