1614, Artist: Peter Paul Rubens
This panel painting, which was created for private devotional use, focuses like a burning mirror on the Passion and the act of Christ’s redemption. The persons and objects are depicted with sensual differentiation and are intended to lead the viewer to a better understanding of the Passion story. This picture, which was painted with particular brilliance, is one of the few works by Rubens that he signed and dated.
