The Crucifixion, Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia, c. 1447

The Crucifixion, Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia, c. 1447

tempera op paneel, h 29cm × w 62cm. More details

The taste for delicate, subtly coloured scenes set against gold backgrounds lasted longer in Siena than in Florence. This work – remarkable for the dramatic isolation of the crucified Christ between his followers (at right) and his persecutors (at left) – was probably the middle in a series of predella panels of the Passion of Christ placed beneath a large altarpiece.
