Features 33 works of art from the Tia Collection that portray the shape, symbol or ideology of the cross.
Offering the reader a unique view of these works through real size reproductions, this book provides an intimate and immersive journey among these masterpieces. An essay by Bernard Marcadé and an interview with the collector by Grazia Quaroni illuminate the works and invite us to discover a singular perspective on Art History, in which theology and literature unite to create a “cross examination” of this familiar and disputed iconography.
Tia Collection, based in Santa Fe (New Mexico, USA), brings together over 2,000 works of art, many contemporary and post-war, including a large body of works by Native American artists. While the works are regularly displayed in museums, the collection itself has never before been presented in the approach offered by Cross Examination.
