In the Roaring Twenties, there’s a historical art mystery!
It’s 1929, and Martha, twelve years old, has no choice but to serve as a maid in the affluent Sewell family’s New York City mansion. Despite the Gatsby-style parties and success trappings, she has her suspicions that something is seriously wrong in the house, especially with Rose Sewell, the once-vivacious lady of the house who now refuses to leave her bed. The other servants think Rose is crazy, but she’s tough and determined. Martha believes there’s more to the story—and that the paintings in Sewell’s gallery hold a secret message that reveals the fact. But nothing is as it seems in a house full of secrets, and no one is who they claim to be. Will Martha solve the mystery of what’s really going on with Rose Sewell by following the clues, deciphering the text, and deciphering the code…? The author’s note outlines true events that inspired the plot.

From the 15th century onwards, the production of albums (muraqqa) was popular in parts of the Islamic world. This exhibition, which features outstanding examples created in India during the reign of the Islamic Mughal emperors (1526–1858), provides an overview of this unique type of art collection. Art collectors commissioned the albums, which acted as mobile galleries. Sheets with finished drawings and calligraphy, as well as sketches and drafts, were bound as books and provided a cohesive format using passepartout frames. The covers and passepartouts were typically ornately painted, indicating how highly these sheets were regarded. Every album has a different set of sheets, representing the preferences of the person who commissioned them.

“A truly significant contribution to the debate of Christianity and the arts… The book has already proven to be the catalyst that was needed to shake the dialogue about Christianity and art out of its ruts.”

Cultural Encounters, Fred Sanders
Unfortunately, art is often regarded with disdain, if not outright scorn, within some Christian cultures. In God in the Gallery: A Christian Embrace of Contemporary Art, art historian, critic, and curator Daniel Siedell provides a unique viewpoint. God in the Gallery, the latest volume in the Cultural Exegesis collection, is a welcome addition to the few volumes that cover evangelical reflection on the arts and aesthetic life. In the end, Siedell claims that art is neither antithetical nor hostile to Christianity. Instead of being a challenge to confidence, it’s in conversation with it as a blessing. The author draws on the work of thinkers ranging from Francis Schaeffer to David Naugle to gain insights into worldviews. He also creates a structure for viewing contemporary art “in the light of Christ.” Siedell also considers the importance of visual art in Christian worship and experience. Photos by Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Enrique Martinez Celaya, and others adorn the pages of the novel.
