Derick Baegert biography

This work is linked to Luke 23:47

The centurion stands in front of the cross where Jesus has just given up the gost. He thinks about what he has witnessed, and then judges that Jesus must have been a righteous man.

Only fragments remain of the altarpiece in the Mathena Church in Wesel, the city where Baegert was born.
