Size: A4 Portrait

The painting titled "Christ on the Cross" by Léon Bonnat, created around 1874, depicts the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. In this somber and realistic portrayal, Christ is shown hanging from the cross against a darkened sky that suggests an atmosphere of suffering and sacrifice. His body is lean and muscular, emphasizing the physical strain and pain of the crucifixion. The attention to anatomical detail is meticulous, from the tension in the arms to the sagging torso and the nails in the hands and feet. The INRI sign above his head denotes the Latin inscription "Iesus Nazarenus, Rex Iudaeorum," which translates to "Jesus the Nazarene, King of the Jews," a title mockingly given to Jesus by the Romans during the crucifixion. The overall mood of the painting is one of solemnity and reverence, capturing a pivotal moment in Christian narrative with a strong emphasis on the human suffering of Christ.
