In his commentary on Brangwyn’s Stations, G.K. Chesterton felt that the design of this Station was pivotal:‘Christ lifts His head, looks sharply over His shoulder, and His eyes shine with defiance and almost with fury. And that one flash of fierceness is shot back at the Women of Jerusalem weeping over Him.’

We are grateful to Dr Libby Horner for her assistance (Eighth Station is no.
S1903 in her forthcoming catalogue raisonné).
