The Crucifixion (detail)

1596-1600
Oil on canvas
Museo del Prado, Madrid

This detail represents the figure of St John the Evangelist who is stationed at the foot of the cross on the right side looking up at the crucified Christ. There is a study for this figure in the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles representing the saint with virtually identical pose and gesture.
