Rogier Van Der Wayden Crucifixion Report

Satisfactory Essays
The artwork I have chosen from the book was the painting by Rogier van der Wayden called the Crucifixion with the Virgin and St. John the evangelist (c. 1400-1464). The work is done with oil painting on wooden oak panels. This painting is very meaningful and descriptive, while also telling a story. It portrays a very complex image of the crucifixion of Jesus Crist on the cross, and his mother, Virgin Mary and disciple John suffering his loss. This painting is divided into two panels, dividing the two scenes. I believe this type of painting would be presented in a church or museum setting, because of the bright and bold coloring. This work overall is resembling a very important time in history, and also has a lot more deep and hidden analysis
