Link to this object

Large-scale sculpted groups of the crucified Christ, the Virgin, and Saint John were frequently found in Spanish medieval churches. They were located either above the choir screen that separated the area for the clergy from the main body of the church or against a side wall.

The Crucifix [52.34] dates about 50 years earlier than the pair of the Mourning Virgin and Saint John [52.33.2]. The museum purchased these three sculptures together in 1952 with the intent of representing this important genre of Spanish medieval art.
