Søren Kierkegaard used the image of Abraham who is willing to sacrifice his only son Isaac to illustrate his concept of the ‚knight of faith‘ in his 1843 book ‚Fear and Trembling‘. I got the chance to produce a series of images for the Folio Society’s edition of the book, which gave me the opportunity to obsessively repeat the scene in painting the way Kierkegaard did in writing.
