  • Altarpiece with the Passion of Christ · The Walters Art Museum · Works of Art
    vignette is individually composed and originally was probably divided from the next by slender columns at every third arch We suggest this division by inserting a painted backdrop to complement the remaining authentic architectural detailing To ensure that the drama of the Passion could be seen from a distance the artist made the figures animated with large heads and exaggerated gestures accentuated through color He also raised the rear figures The use of wood allows the carving of weapons and other intricate details as stone would not In the 1490s there were several workshops in Brussels producing large complex carved altarpieces often for distant markets The most famous shop was that of Jan Borman to which our altarpiece was once attributed The Walters altarpiece was made for the Collegiate Church of Blainville Crevon in Normandy in northwestern France The altarpiece was damaged at some point in the past perhaps during the 16th century conflicts between Protestants and Catholics The Crucified Christ the two thieves and the attendant angels are 16th or 17th century replacements Provenance Jacques Seligmann Paris by purchase Henry Walters Baltimore 1911 by purchase Walters Art Museum 1931 by bequest Credit Acquired by Henry Walters 1912 Download Image
