Cross in art: photography, cinema, painting and music
A small gallery about the representation of cross in art: how it is interpreted by different artists in painting, photography, cinema and also music. I like the way cross is represented in different style and contexts.
Read something more about following painting by Rembrandt here.
In the famous Caravaggio’s Vocazione di San Matteo (following image) you can notice the cross reference looking at window in the highest part of the scene. The symbolism is underlined also by the beautiful light which probably is a divine sign.
An humor and ironic shot with a strong contraposition between sacred and profane: this is Elliot Erwitt’s style.
Again a fusion between cross and light as the symbolism in Caravaggio. This is by Richard Sandler, a beautiful and theatrical picture taken in the streets of NYC.
One of the first scene of Hateful eight directed by Quentin Tarantino.
Robert De Niro in Cape Fear directed by Martin Scorsese.
Something about music:
That’s all folks
Stay well, have always light in your life
