The Crucifixion

Ca. 1480. Mixed method on panel.
Not on display

This is one of Bernat’s early works and is very similar to the work of Bermejo in the anatomy, colour and slim proportions of the figures in it -Saint John, the Magdalene, Longinus- as well as the little use of gold in the figures and in the scenery. The composition, a grandiose crucifixion which could have been completed in Bermejo’s workshop and with his help, is based on that of the altar piece in Daroca (Zaragoza), although with a few differences.
