The Crucifixion, Giovanni da Milano, c. 1360

The Crucifixion, Giovanni da Milano, c. 1360

tempera on panel, h 51cm × w 30.5cm. More details

Giovanni da Milano introduced richer colour and a more refined style to Florentine painting of the late 14th century. This is seen in the graceful silhouettes of the figures against the traditional gold ground. The panel was probably painted for someone with a special connection to the saints depicted: Francis, Mary Magdalene, the Virgin Mary, John the Evangelist and Ignatius of Antioch.
