Goback 8 / 11 Forward

Title: The Crucifixion
Description:
Francesco del Cossa (c. 1430 c. 1477)
Griffoni Polyptych: The Crucifixion
Tempera on panel, 1473
diameter 63 cm
National Gallery of Art, Washington, USA

The reconstruction of the polyptych, dismembered in the 18th century, is not unambiguous. It seems certain that the central panel was the painting of St Vincent Ferrer while on his sides were St Peter and St John the Baptist. This Crucifixion tondo was probably in the upper central position. The predella was uted by Ercole de' Roberti.

On the Crucifixion tondo, in spite of heraldic simplicity, the statuesque figures convey an impression of grief with force and poignancy.
