This collection contains images dating from the early 17th century to contemporary works. Artists include Bruce Herman, Otto Dix, Georges Rouault, Jacques Callot and Tyrus Clutter, to name a few. Visitors are placed at St. Stephen’s Gate, the scene where Jesus was condemned by the crowd as described in Matthew 27.
