Govert Flinck biography

This work is linked to Matthew 27:45

Calvary. Christ on the cross. To his left and right: crucified criminals. At the foot of the cross several people are mourning.

The composition and the use of light and dark in this panel still show much influence of Flinck's teacher Rembrandt, who made a similar painting.
