Description

Christ is shown on the cross above an open landscape. On the left two holy women support the swooning Virgin, who wears a purple dress and a blue cloak. Below, on the right, kneels the Magdelen, her hands clasped in prayer. A jar of ointment stands on the ground beside her. In the background Saint John the Baptist and a companion can be seen in a meadow, and in the distance beyond a river, a town in a valley.
