The Crucifixion

The canvas of the Crucifixion (XVI century), from many attributed to Palma il Vecchio, but more recently assigned to Giovanni Buonconsiglio, said the Marescalco

Of particular interest this ample canvas, attributed to Palma il Vecchio but ultimately assigned (with some doubt) to Giovanni Buonconsiglio, also known as Marescalco, represents one of the most excellent testimonies to Venetian Mannerism present in Chioggia for its harmonious composition and rich, precious emphasis on colour.
The vast spatial and chromatic field in which the composition is placed with its base of deep blues, the sober sculptural qualities of the figures emphasised with delicate tonal qualities allow us to only imagine of the absolute skills of the artist, Palma. The pitiful depiction of Mary Magdalene in the act of embracing the cross, a motif typical of the artist, confirms the artist's mastery of his craft.
To the left the Virgin, obviously in pain but nevertheless in a state of composure is accompanied by St Luke, meanwhile in the other side is St John the Evangelist in symmetry with the Madonna with Joseph of Arimathea at his shoulder.
