The crucified Christ

Ca. 1675. Oil on canvas Not on display

The background of a dark, cloudy sky creates a dramatic setting for this presentation of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross. Murillo uses light to model the body, while the slight twist of the torso and legs increases the impression of three-dimensional form. This is one of the works that most clearly reveals the influence of Anthony van Dyck’s prints and paintings on Murillo.
