Example text

E. figurative art that – helping itself to classicizing forms of beauty – suggests a mendaciously harmonious relationship between man and God, even if in the shape of a hopeful anticipation.  276).  277).  276). Tillich’s theological dismissal of Raphael’s religious art is particularly relevant for us, as it stands in glaring contrast with Schlegel’s celebration of Raphael, as the epitome of an art that reconciles man with God through beauty. I cannot do full justice to Tillich’s important point in this context.

Now we can see how ambitious Schlegel’s view of painting is: its task is not the presentation of the divine per se, but of the divine in nature. In so doing, Schlegel betrays what we could call a theo-humanist pictorial theory, in which a canvas can evoke the feeling of a God reconciled with our human nature. It is also a deeply paradoxical task: if the divine is that which eo ipso exceeds any sensuous object, how can it be shown in natural phenomena? Through a double movement reconciliation is both made visible and deferred.
