Painted in 1918, this painting of the descent from the cross is part of a cycle of works painted by Anto Carte immediately after his encounter with Emile Verhaeren in Paris at the end of the 1910s. As a humanist painter, primarily interested in the human condition, Anto Carte was part of the “Belgian Imagists” group alongside artists such as Valerius de sSedeleer or Gustave van de Woestyne with whom he exhibited in 1923 in Paris.

The present painting reveals Anto Carte’s propensity for audacious compositions and the use of particularly innovative perspective and points of view. The precise drawings and deep, rich colours are characteristic of the work of this artist who became the founder of the Nervia group (1928-1948). Anto Carte’s technique involves a precise use of line which highlights the silhouettes against the background, thus giving rise here to a poignant expressivity.

By painting one of the most well know Bible stories, the Belgian painter also captured a portrait of the human condition in this work of monumental austerity. Indeed, all of the painters’ art is based on a continual philosophical reflection on human destiny and the present Descent from the Cross throws the spectator into a deep introspective meditation.
