Traditional Catholic art gains a compelling new medium in gallery wrapped canvas. Canvases featuring this modern art trend combine special printing technology and the technical skill of our Steubenville craftsmen to carefully wrap and tuck the canvas around the back of a 3/4" thick engineered wood mount. This method creates an impressive visual display with a faux 3D effect as the image continues around all visible sides of the mount. The canvas is free of visible staples or tacks and stands alone with no need for a frame. Each canvas hangs with a wire in the back and has an attractive satin-matte finish.
The Emmerich Stations of the Cross gallery wrapped canvas set is named after Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, the German nun and mystic who wrote the highly influential meditation The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This set of stations was painted in the German style by an unknown artist in the late 19th century. Recognizable for its illuminated golden halos around the heads of Christ and His followers, as well as for the rich contrast and shadowing throughout the set, the Emmerich Stations of the Cross convey the beauty and sacrifice of Jesus’ Passion with a blend of modern and traditional styles.
This set of 14 Stations provides a great source of meditation upon the Passion of Christ and are the perfect addition to the Lenten season.
