Sammanfattning: The Good Samaritan and the sublime – an investigation of why an altarpiece, painted by Staffan Hallström to the church of Bodum, was rejected The following thesis investigates why an altarpiece ordered by the local church border in Bodum, was rejected. The artist, Staffan Hallström was a modernist (expressionist) who worked with abstractions in form and colour. The artist created the altarpiece, in periods, between 1960-1962. The altarpiece was rejected 1962. The painting and prepartory sketches belongs to The Museum of Sketches in Lund. The theoretical framework is based on a combination of archive theory and theorists of the sublime including Jean-François Lyotard, Pseudo-Longinos, Edmund Burke, Immanuel Kant, Wilhelm Worringer and Barnett Newman. The methodological framework consist of a combination of archive research, withholding letters, newspaper articles and official documentary, formal analysis of the painting and a dialog in a hermeneutic circle between the expression of the altarpiece and theories of the sublime. The archive material was classified in five groups, according to the arguments against the altarpiece. In search of a deeper understanding of arguments and resistance against the altarpierce, the aestethic expression and its connection to the sublime are discussed. There are connections with the sublime. The sublime expression of The Good Samaritan was one considerable explanation why the altarpiece was rejected.
