oil on panel, h 85.5cm × w 56cm. Catalogue entry

The Crucifixion at centre is set against the background of the city of Utrecht. Thus the biblical scene acquired a certain reality for the medieval viewer. At left is Pope Gregory the Great, who experienced a vision of Christ while celebrating Mass. At right is Saint Christopher who bears the Christ Child and the burden of mankind on his shoulders.
