The Crucifixion with Saints and Donors

Ca. 1475. Oil on panel.
Room 058

This panel depicts the Crucifixion with Christ on the cross, the Virgin Mary and Saint John. Flanking them are Saints Jerome, James the Apostle, Mary Magdalene and Catherine, accompanied by the donor’s extensive family. The background landscape includes a view of Jerusalem, shown as a Flemish city of the artist’s period. The anonymous painter reveals a detailed knowledge of the works produced in Ghent by Hugo van der Goes (c. 1440-1482) and his followers, to whose circle he undoubtedly belonged.
