While some artists and intellectuals rejected organized religion in general, and Catholicism in particular, others looked to the early Church as a period of genuine spirituality. Bernard was one of these neo-Catholics and his print returns to the linear, flat, static, iconic style characteristic of medieval art and evokes the tradition of hand-colored woodcut prints made for popular devotion in the fifteenth century. The artist attempts to recapture the innocence of an earlier time in the deliberately crude depiction of the Crucifixion.
