The Crucifixion

At the centre Christ is on the cross. On the left are the Magdalen and the Virgin supported by two Holy Women. On the right are Saint John and a figure with a scalloped halo who may be Saint Anne. The tracery and ornament around the picture are original.

Recorded as formerly the pinnacle of the retable of Saint Martin in the Church of Saint Martin in Riglos. Other panels are in Barcelona, Pennsylvania and Bologna. It is dated very approximately to the middle of the 15th century.
