18th C. Spanish Colonial Painting, Jesus Carrying Cross
Item Details
Description
Spanish Colonial, Mexico, ca. 18th century CE. A moving and sizeable oil on canvas painting depicting Christ carrying the Cross in 3/4 view, finely painted with a mastery of chiaroscuro that intensifies the drama of the scene. Jesus wears voluminous robes and a meticulously delineated Crown of Thorns on his head, with blood dramatically dripping down his expressive visage. Rather than a narrative of the Way to Calvary that would include other figures and a recognizable setting, this is a devotional painting with dramatic pathos and intense emotion characteristic of the Baroque period. We see a suffering Savior weathered by the weight of the Cross, but with an upward gaze suggestive of his salvation, this strong composition set in a handsomely carved and gilded wooden frame. An outstanding religious painting from the Spanish Colonial era. Size: 34" L x 25" W (86.4 cm x 63.5 cm); 39" L x 30.5" W (99.1 cm x 77.5 cm)

Provenance: private Los Angeles County, California, USA collection
