Kreuzabnahme Christi

Kreuzabnahme Christi

More about this artwork
The composition of the painting is indebted to the famous altarpiece in Antwerp by Peter Paul Rubens of 1612. The prototype of High Baroque painting was however modified into a poignant scene of hopeless despair in which the death of Christ is depicted with unsparing realism.
