Crucifixion (detail)

c. 1340
Stained glass window
St Stephen's Cathedral, Vienna

The picture shows the Virgin and St John from the monumental Crucifixion in the choir of St Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna. The emotional intensity emanating from the figures is intensified by the deep red background.

Under Duke Albrecht II of Austria, the High Gothic layout of the choir was completed and consecrated in 1340. The stained glass window must have been made shortly before the consecration.
