About this artwork

This Christ on the cross a traditional theme for altarpieces thanks to his special artistic value. Van Dyck combines a simple composition in the middle Christ right of the cross (in front of us on the left) Maria John and Mary Magdalene on the left (in front of us on the right) Roman soldiers with pronounced feelings: Christ "suffer the grief of Mary and Mary Magdalene the cruelty of the soldiers. The dramatic cloud cover and contrast between the pale naked body of Christ and the dark clothes of the bystanders reinforce the emotionality.
