Genre & Material
Where can I find this in Berlin?
Hans Baldung impressively shows us his version of the Crucifixion of Christ. We see a very pale Christ on the cross, flanked by two other crucified men with twisted limbs. Baldung locates the event within his period, the Renaissance. The others present, the soldiers, Mary, the disciple John, Mary Magdalene at the foot of the cross and the other actors and dressed in black in the contemporary fashion. In the background of the painting, a mountain landscape can be seen, the sky is pitch black. On the bottom right, the commissioner of the work is integrated.
