Giampietrino: 'Christ carrying his Cross'
The composition reflects the work of Leonardo da Vinci whose influence was strong for several generations in Milan. This type of painting, in which the viewer is put in the position of the Holy Women on whom Christ looked on the route to Golgotha, was especially popular in North Italy in the early 16th century. For another example, see Altobello Melone's depiction of 'Christ carrying the Cross'.
