This is a history of emotions..
Nicholas Wyatt The Lonely Protestant 1999
The paintings and text by artist Nicholas Wyatt presented here apply an interpretative method to the visual systems of Western Christian devotional painting and its development in the post reformation period. Paintings are reservoirs of emotion – both in the process of their production and the wider collective cultural meanings that are applied to them. The purpose of the images and texts presented here is to find out what, if any, meanings and experiences may be recuperated by contemporary aesthetics from the histories of emotion embodied in the visual systems of post reformation Christian devotional imagery.
