The Crucifixion

1515: Musée d'Unterlinden, Colmar

Grünewald stringently pursued the mastery of figural anatomy even in his religious paintings. The symbolic, storytelling elements include the figure on the right: St. John the Baptist pointing out the theological meaning that Christ must die so that man can be saved.
