The Crucifixion

Ca. 1550. Oil on oak panel.
Room 052C

The choice of soft colouring ranging from the green of the vegetation to the blue of the perizonium, in marked contrast with the drama of the subject matter, gives this painting an unsettling atmosphere. The light dominates everything, although Christ has just died. With his usual technical skill, Kempeneer creates a small panel intended for spiritual exercise in a domestic oratory.
