Weyden, Rogier Van Der (Follower Of)

The composition is inspired by Rogier van der Weyden`s models. The figure of Christ is based in reverse of the Crucifixion in Vienna (Kunsthistorisches Museum) and the Mary Magdalene is quoted from the Descent from the Cross in the Prado. In spite of the meticulous technique and his mastery of landscape, indebted to Gerard David, the author lacks Van der Weyden`s skill in linking the figures toget
