The illustration is one of the Stations of the Cross done by Frank Roper in
the early 1970s for the Roman Catholic Church of Our Lady, Queen of Peace, in
Newcastle Emlyn, West Wales.
Roper, who studied with Henry Moore, became Vice Principal at the School
(later College) of Art in Cardiff, where he joined Epstein and John Piper in
the restoration of the blitzed Llandaff Cathedral. He died in 2000, and is far
too little known, say the producers of this booklet about him. A master of
work in wood, bronze, silver, aluminium, glass and ceramics, Roper had many
private patrons; but the bulk of his work consists of the statues, windows, and
ecclesiastical furnishings large and small that he did for churches.
