The Crucified Thief (detail)

c. 1410
Oil on wood
Städelsches Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt

The Roman soldiers looking on the crucified thief, particularly the one whose curly hair is held back by a white band and who is placing one hand on his heart, are portrayed with a realism that was at that time outstanding.
