Crucifixion- Painting Of Woman Enjoying Painting By Francisco Zurbaran

painting of woman enjoying painting by Francisco Zurbaran

G. Boersma
acrylic on masonite
8" x 8" or 20 x 20 cm


The figure on my painting is looking at a painting of Jesus Christ by Francisco Zurbaran who painted it in 1627. Conforming to Counter-Reformation dictates, Zurbaran depicted the event occurring not in a crowd but in isolation. Emerging from a dark background, the austere figure has been both idealized in its quiet, graceful beauty and elegant rendering and humanized by the individualized face.
