Is God Dead Again?

That question will be answered in the order in which it was received. But if you can’t wait that long, pick up a copy of C. S. Hibbard‘s THE OTHER SIDE: THE SHOCKING TRUTH BEHIND 100 CLASSIC PAINTINGS—just out from Black Scat.


Upon its release in the U.K. in 2009, The Other Side quickly became a bestseller. It has been translated into half a dozen languages and over two million copies have sold worldwide. Black Scat Books is honored to offer this provocative work to the American public in a new trade paperback edition—featuring 100 color reproductions, as well as a foreword by noted art historian Paul Forristal.

Includes paintings by 40 of the world’s greatest artists:  Allais, Altdorfer, Bosch, Botticelli, Bruegel, Caravaggio, Chagall, Cranach, Dali, DeVries, Ernst, Giacometti, Giotto, Goya, Greco, Holbein, Klee, Klimt, Leonardo, Magritte, Memling, Michelangelo, Millet, Monet, Paolo Uccello, Raffaello, Rembrandt, Renoir, Rousseau, Rubens, Schiele, Seurat, Tansey, Uccello, Van der Weyden, Van Eyck, Van Gogh, Velasquez, Vermeer, Veronese.

Cecil Sears Hibbard is the author of the acclaimed study Art & Religion: The Bohemian Divide (2005), and a collection of incendiary  essays: Leonardo’s Smile & Other Seductions (2007). His novel The Architect was nominated for the prestigious Booker Prize.
