Christ Carrying the Cross, Quinten Massijs (I), c. 1510 - c. 1515

oil on panel, h 83cm × w 59cm. Catalogue entry

Here Massijs, a leading artist in early 16th-century Antwerp, paints an intense picture of Jesus's suffering. Jesus appears close to the foreground, connecting almost tangibly with the viewer: bloodied and bowed under the weight of the cross. This penetrating depiction helped worshippers empathise with Jesus’s pain.
