JACOBELLO DEL FIORE

Crucifixion

1395-1400
Tempera and gold on panel, 127 x 135 cm
Toledo Museum of Art, Toledo, Ohio

Christ, larger in scale than the others around him, looms alone in the centre of the composition. Surrounding him are about figures whose actions occurred sequentially over time, here appearing simultaneously. Mary Magdalene kneels at the foot of the cross. Standing to her left is St John the Evangelist.

This panel was certainly part of an unidentified larger altarpiece.
