Christ carrying the Cross
This painting is part of the group: Two Panels from an Altarpiece

This painting, together with 'The Agony in the Garden' once formed part of a polyptych or triptych. The inscription on the bottom right, '1501/ ff.q.o', is not wholly convincing as contemporary and the second line is obscure, but is likely to be the right date.
