The Christian Soul accepts the Cross

Ca. 1630. Oil on canvas.
Not on display

Totally surrounded by crosses, Christ accepts his penitence. He is followed by a young woman in the same pose wearing a wreath of flowers and identified as the Christian Soul. While this work is undoubtedly by a French artist, no convincing suggestion as to its attribution has been made to date.
