Ridolfo Ghirlandaio: 'The Procession to Calvary'

Explore the paintings

Identifiable with an altarpiece mentioned by Vasari (1550) as painted for the church of San Gallo, Florence. He implies it was one of Ridolfo's earliest important commissions, and noted that it included portraits. Some of the heads are modelled on those invented by Leonardo da Vinci for his Battle of Anghiari.

The picture probably dates from not long after 1504.
