OIL PAINTING: Crucifixion with a Donor, 1480-1485
We do not know whether this panel - Crucifixion with a Donor originally had wings. No other crucifixion by Hieronymus Bosch is known, although the theme returns as a secondary motif in others of Bosch paintings. It is also one of the master's few works containing a donor portrait. The style displays a striking balance and serenity. The flesh colours of Christ's body are softened and the draperies sober. The countryside shows a very gentle gradation of greens, producing a successful effect of depth.
