Crucifixion with Mary and John (260 x 155 mm)
France, Loire Valley, c. 1550

A GRAND CRUCIFIXION SCENE CHARACTERISTIC OF 16th CENTURY FRENCH RENAISSANCE ART

This imposing Crucifixion typifies the Renaissance in France in the sixteenth century.  A monumental figure of Christ hangs on the cross, before a backdrop composed of a lush distant landscape and impressionistic cumulous clouds.  On either side stand the Virgin Mary and Saint John the Evangelist, their bodies deliberately distorted in manneristic poses.  A cartouche bearing an unidentified emblem is at the bottom of the scene outside the frame.
