The Crucifixion

It is not known from which altarpiece this predella panel comes. The predella is the lower section of an altarpiece and it would have been made up from several panels. Other panels from the same series are 'The Last Supper' (Edinburgh) and 'The Resurrection' (Frick Collection, New York). Two other panels have been discussed in relation to this series: a 'Flagellation' (now in a private collection) and a 'Capture of Christ' (now lost).
