It depicts Christ on his knees, crushed beneath the weight of the giant cross he bears. One soldier stamps his bare foot while another brutally drags him forward. In the background, the Virgin has collapsed upon seeing her son so cruelly afflicted. This work was acquired with assistance from the Wolfson Foundation.
