The Way of the Cross dates from 1913 and is the work of Ernest Wante, born in Ghent in 1875 and died in Berchem in 1960. Painter of religious subjects, landscapes, portraits and murals, he was trained in drawing school of Saint-Nicolas, then at the Academy and the Higher Institute of Antwerp. Himself a professor at the Antwerp Academy, he was a renowned portrait painter and applied himself especially to religious subjects, such as the “Death of Saint Godelieve” (Antwerp, K.M.S.K.). His interpretation of biblical scenes combines historical realism and the influence of symbolism. The Way of the Cross was painted on canvas and then glued to the wall.
