Beginning with the first images of Christ on the cross from the 5th century and concluding with a photograph by Robert Mapplethorpe, the works are presented in chronological order. With images spanning over 1,500 years, Crucifixion reflects the range of responses that great artists can bring to this highly emotional, controversial event. Works include a wide range of media, including illuminated manuscripts, ivories, frescos, oil paintings, etchings, sculpture, watercolors and photographs.
