(b. ca. 1386, Firenze, d. 1466, Firenze)


Wood, 168 x 173 cm
Santa Croce, Florence

According to Vasari, Donatello is also supposed at this early stage of his career to have carved and painted a wooden Crucifix for Santa Croce, Florence (in situ), but its attribution is no longer universally accepted.

The Crucifix is in the Cappella Bardi di Vernio just off the left transept of Santa Croce.
