This intriguing painting contains 23 vignettes from the Passion of Christ. Starting in the upper left, Jesus makes his triumphant entry into Jerusalem. The narrative is more or less left to right, from nighttime of the agony and arrest, to day of the trials before Pilate, and then the Crucifixion and Resurrection. In the far upper right, we have Jesus telling Mary Magdalene not to cling to him.

This painting is exquisitely done and fascinating to look at. It is beguiling to look for the different scenes of the Passion. It is attractive for children, too, and so can serve as a beautiful picture for your home that at the same time is a catechism. Not to be irreverent in the comparison, but for kids it has a bit of a Where's Waldo effect. It is decentralized like a Richard Scary picture and draws the eye in the same way.

Painted around 1470 by Hans Memling (1430-1494). He was a German-born painter who became a citizen of Bruges, Belgium, because that was a major center of the art scene at the time. His reputation surged in the 19th Century with the uptick in religious sensibility that century enjoyed. Oil painting on oak. 56.7 × 92.2 cm.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14", and about 1.75" for larger pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

We hesitated to offer this picture in the 8.5x11 size as the images get pretty tiny. We recommend 11x14 or larger.
