While putting together the Artist Study for this month, I also thought it would be really interesting to have an art appreciation study of paintings that reflect each of the stations of the cross. So each day for 14 days I'll post a painting by a well-known artist that depicts that station. This way we will have a complete stations of the cross by Friday of Sorrows - last Friday of Lent, right before Palm Sunday.

THIRD STATION
Jesus Falls the First Time



The Procession to Calvary


Artist: BRUEGEL
Date: 1564


I will be including several artists we have studied in the Monthly Artist Studies. For anyone who studied Bruegel the Elder, have your children see if they can identify the artist of this painting by sight. It is an interesting rendition - Christ is central to the composition of the painting, yet is only a small part of the overall picture. It is very classic Bruegel - lots of activity of the common people going on throughout the painting. What kinds of activites are they engaged in?

Another artist we have studied on 4 Real in the past. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any images that were larger - I like the larger ones.

SIXTH STATION
Veronica Wipes the Face of Jesus



The Road to Calvary

Artist: RUBENS
Date: 1634-37

You may start to notice that many of the paintings depict several elements of the stations not in isolation- for instance this one has His mother, the women of Jerusalem, and Simon as well as Veronica. Also note in many of the paintings the two thieves are depicted following in the processsion.

His paintings seem very animated - the motion seems to flow. Rubens is often called Prince of Baroque painters. Gwen is going to be posting a 4 Real study of him for a future month.

EIGHTH STATION
Jesus Meets the Women of Jerusalem



The Carrying of the Cross


Artist: JACQUEMART
Date: 1409

I thought this one was interesting in that it includes the hanging Judas. Reminds me of the Passion movie, because even though we know this happened from the gospel accounts I hadn't really seen it depicted.
