painted by Virginia Roach Munroe
The Stations of the Cross that were created by Virginia Roach Munroe present a vision of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Each painting is a close-up, as if viewed on television, and each uses a basic color symbol, such as red for the hands of Pontius Pilate. The idea came to Monroe in the late 1960’s, during the turmoil of the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement, when anger and hatred were expressed vividly on the nightly news. The title of each painting is a few words on how the event might relate to modern times.
