Any Catholic artwork you like?


comics,books,films,Manga ect.

do you have anything of Catholic Media you like?


I like Salvatore Dali’s surreal religious art.


Daniel Mitsui is doing good work currently


I saw this drawing - and thought it was well done.



I like his ‘Crucifixion’ and ‘Angelus’…

Dali - Crucifixion

Dali - Angelus

:paintbrush: :paintbrush: :paintbrush:


Every image in The Catholic Priest: Image of Christ Through Fifteen Centuries of Art is breathtaking.


Wow. My dearly beloved Dad had that Dali crucified painting above his bed.
You can’t inage my shock, clicking that one -
Never asked him about it…that was today’s surprise award !


Who is the artist?


I think the painting is called “ on the road to Damascus “
It’s when Jesus was thought dead, and two pals were walking home sad.


It’s “The Road to Emmaus” by Robert Zund, 1877.
I’ve seen it before and I like it too


Most of the art I like just seems to be floating around the Internet on various meditation videos and websites (some of them Protestant or Mormon) without any attribution. Like this one (needs more angels though)


Or this one, which I like because of all the different “apostles” in the boat, but it reminds me a bit of “Gilligan’s Island”



This one, “The Prince of Peace” by Harry Andersen, was actually painted by a Seventh Day Adventist, not a Catholic. I have to admit I like it anyway.



For the purposes of the discussion, how are we defining artwork as Catholic, anyway? The artist is Catholic regardless of subject matter? The images portrayed are Catholic regardless of the religion of the artist? Both? Something else? :thinking:


I like it… It’s surreal and trippy, but also deep…


I think it belongs on the wall right next to another gem of its era, which is definitely Catholic: “The Peace Sowers” by Walter Molino. My aunt had this picture backintheday


I’d rather see JP2 and Reagan, but it’s still pretty :slight_smile:


Thank you for that link…good stuff!


Here’s a piece of literature I love.

“Pied Beauty” by Fr John Manley Hopkins is a classical piece of romantic literature.

Gory be to God for dappled things—
For skies of couple-colour as a brinded cow;
For rose-moles all in stipple upon trout that swim;
Fresh-firecoal chestnut-falls; finches’ wings;
Landscape plotted and pieced—fold, fallow, and plough;
And áll trádes, their gear and tackle and trim.

All things counter, original, spare, strange;
Whatever is fickle, freckled (who knows how?)
With swift, slow; sweet, sour; adazzle, dim;
He fathers-forth whose beauty is past change:
Praise him.


John F. Kennedy and Pope John XXIII.
