Christ carrying the Cross

perhaps 1500-5, Probably by Lo Spagna

This painting is part of the group: Scenes from the Passion of Christ
On loan from Dunrobin Castle Collection, © Dunrobin Castle Collection

The generous loan of this picture to the National Gallery re-unites it with its pair, 'Christ at Gethsemene', for the first time in over a century. They were probably made as the painted wings of a small portable altarpiece. Its different surface colour is explained by the fact that, unlike its pair, this uncleaned picture still has a now yellowed 19th-century varnish.
