Eric Gill, Stations of the Cross, Westminster Cathedral, 1914–18. Hopton Wood stone relief with added colour.

All the best art is religious. Religious means according to the rule of God. All art that is godly, that is, made without concern for worldly advantage, is religious. The great religions of the world have always resulted in great artistic creation because they have helped to set man free from himself—have provided a discipline under which men can work and in which commerce is subordinated.
—Eric Gill, 1928
