About this title


Gloria in Excelsis Deo presents a series of 68 paintings and 139 drawings that explore Frank Mason's vision of the life of Christ. Also included is an introduction by James Cooper of the Newington-Cropsey Foundation. Mason takes his place in a long line of old masters who have interpreted the New Testament - Fra Angelico, Memling, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Rembrandt. Like them, Mason fused the dignity of his craft with the expression of his faith. This collection of paintings and drawings represents Mason's life-long labor. Each chapter is accompanied by the scriptural passage which inspired it, and is augmented with the artist's commentary. Mason's words give insight into his choice of subjects and interpretation, as well as intimate details about the painting process and how the work evolved both spiritually and artistically. Gloria in Excelsis Deo is destined to be one of the most important art books of the season.

About the Author:

One of the most acclaimed American painters and teachers of our time, Frank Mason has been described as the artist who carried the torch of realism through the age of Abstract Expressionism. He was an Instructor of Fine Arts at the Art Students League in New York City for fifty-seven years and was the first artist since Caravaggio to be awarded the prestigious Cross of Merit, Prima Classe, by the Order of Malta. Mason's paintings can be seen in churches and museums in Europe and America, including the American Embassy in London, St. Patrick's Old Cathedral, National Academy of Design, and Museum of the City of New York.
