Christ nailed to the Cross

1577. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

This is the moment in Christ´s Passion, as told in the New Testament, when the Roman Soldiers nail his body to the Cross. In the middle ground, Saint John the Evangelist indicates the scene to the Virgin, who falls to the ground in sorrow. The importance of the strong and strikingly contrasted colors in this composition, defines Campi´s style. The artist steeped his religious compositions with great pathos and an exacerbated naturalism that foreshadow seventeenth-century painting. Here, this is visible in the pain of Christ, emphasized by that of his Mother.
