By Camille Flammarion

Si le texte évangélique de l’Apocalypse est une des thématiques les plus représentées en histoire de l’art, ce n’est pas tant pour faire allégeance au texte sacré que pour sa représentation : celle de l’humanité en tant que telle. Véritable mise à nu (selon l’étymologie grecque), l’Apocalypse ouvre au peintre les portes d’un miroir psychologique infini. Et de poser los angeles véritable query de sens, intrinsèque à toute situation humaine, celle de l’existence. C’est pourquoi des églises romanes jusqu’aux artistes contemporains tels que Bacon ou Cattelan, non sans oublier les Expressionnistes, ce livre revisite l’esthétique de los angeles souffrance à travers les plus beaux chefs-d’oeuvre.
