For your convenience, here again is the comparison used on the Midterm:Left: Right Gruenwald, The Risen Christ Bernini, from the Isenheim Altarpiece Ecstacy of St. Teresa Northern Renaissance Cornaro Chapel, Sta Maria della Vittoria, Italian Baroque.
Both works show the use of light as the symbol of a transformative religous experience. Gruenwald's altarpiece, whose cover shows the stark and even gruesome experience of the Crucifixion, is opened to reveal Christ's Resurrection as a metamorphosis into an ecstatic, light-giving and light-filled creature. We are also privileged to view Bernini's St. Teresa, as she receives the message of Divine Love under a fall of golden light. Light is both the symbol and the agent of this great change.
Please also note that there will be no make-ups for the final without a documented, usually medical, excuse. Please note that auditors may not take the final.
