Lucas Cranach the Elder biography

This work is linked to John 19:25

To the left are the two criminals who were crucified together with Jesus (on the right). In the center are Mary and John the Evangelist.

This is an early work of Lucas Cranach's, made shortly after his Vienna period. Special about this work is that the crosses are not in line but together form a closed space, in which Mary and John are central.
