Master of Liesborn: 'Head of Christ Crucified'
This painting is part of the group: The Liesborn Altarpiece

Explore the paintings

A fragment from the central panel of the Liesborn high altarpiece, which showed the Crucifixion. The figure of Christ was once surrounded by angels, some of whom collected his blood in chalices. Part of one wing is visible lower left, and fragments of the angels' figures survive in Münster. The figure of Christ was accompanied by the Virgin and saints, fragments of which survive in the National Gallery Collection.

For fuller details of the altarpiece see 'The Annunciation' by the same artist.
