Will Shuster

Will Shuster, a Santa Fe artist and one of the many students of John Sloan, had a strong affinity for the deep, sacrificial religiosity of northern New Mexico. The untitled etching from the Modrall Sperling collection records the mystical relationship of Los Hermanos, The Brotherhood of Penitentes, with the cross, in which these men of faith struggle to uphold the heavy symbol of their religion and salvation.
