Crucifixion

c. 1515
Oil on panel, 94 x 72 cm
Maison d'Art, Monte Carlo

This Crucifixion is a prime example of the artist's profound interest in Netherlandish and German art. Compositions of the Crucifixion with the crosses set in the middle foreground against a vast panorama seen in a bird's-eye view ultimately derived from Netherlandish examples known in Italy.
