Title: Christ Crucified
Description:

Antonello da Messina (c. 1430 – February 1479)
Christ Crucified
1475
Oil on wood, painted surface, excluding addition with signature
41.9 x 25.4 cm
National Gallery, London, UK




Inscribed on a cartellino (retouched) below the cross: 1475/ Antonellus Messaneus / me pinxit.

Christ is shown on the cross at his Crucifixion. The Virgin Mary and Saint John the Evangelist are on either side. The minute figures in the landscape background ­ one of whom holds a ladder ­ are perhaps coming to remove Christ's body.

Another version of the composition ­ also dated 1475 ­ is in Antwerp (Muse des Beaux-Arts). Antonello was in Venice in this year.

The rectangular addition to the centre of the lower edge of the painting (which includes the signature) may originally have formed part of the frame.

Collection of the 2nd Marquess of Bute by 1848; bought, 1884
