Wall Crucifix, Ceramic, Hand-Painted, White, Brown, Made in Belgium, 1950s

About

Nearly six inch tall wall crucifix in ceramic, made in Belgium in the late 1950s. Hand-painted in glossy dark brown and black with volume of figure over a white and dark brown cross. Modernist christ with well balanced lines. This crucifix would fit perfectly in a Le Corbusier building, a clear bright loft or a sunny countryside cabin or doorstep. It's raw honesty designates it to both the wild nature and the minimal city home. This piece is part of a large piece ceramic crucifix collection made in Belgium from the 1950s to the late 1970s. From modernism to brutalism, they range from being as futurist as a modernist church to as raw as a Brutalist building. Each artist offered a different take on the representation of faith through volumes and colors. The collection offers great choice to compose a custom wall of modernist crucifixes.
