About this work
Bible. N.T. Matthew 27.57-60; Mark 15.46; Luke 23.53. John 19.38-42. The two criminals are sometimes portrayed crucified differently to Christ; here however only one hangs by his armpits; the other is crucified as Christ would have been.

At the left of the picture, four old men, perhaps Jewish elders, survey the scene
