Jesus is Nailed to the Cross
by Private CollectionsSize: 55" x 33"
Medium: Oil on Canvas
One of 4 Stations of the Cross. Can be purchased separately or as a set
-Painted in the early 19th Century (Between 1800-1850)
- Artist was most likely from Germany or Netherlands (The faces of the people are very eastern European, specifically German), trained in the French academic style (he used canvas not linen and he used canvas on a tin back).
-Was also influenced by Italy, because of itâ€™s classical â€œRomanâ€ composition
-In the 1920â€™s someone used copper nails to secure the canvas more to the tin. The copper nails and screws are from that time frame, and the artist would have never nailed through his lines of paint. This is a good indication that it was taken down from itâ€™s original church during WWI for safekeeping. --Sean Morton of Morton Appraisals
