Crucifixion Altarpiece

Oil on panel
Stedelijk Museum De Lakenhal, Leiden

This altarpiece, like the Lamentation Altarpiece, was painted for the Augustinian convent of Mariënpoel in Oestgeest near Leiden. The handsome shrine has a tall, saddle-backed central panel which is filled with numerous figures in an effortless fashion. The Mannerist style is evident throughout.
