    time in Venice and Rome. In the picture Christ, has called out from the cross to God, and a bystander has “fetched a sponge, which he soaked in sour wine, and held it to his lips on the end of a cane.” Saint John stands below the cross as the Virgin Mary and two companions arrive, mourning, while three soldiers at left gamble for Christ's tunic. The figure on the ladder is a particularly brilliant narrative interpolation. Christ is shown crucified between two thieves on the hill of Golgotha,…

Now, certes, I wol do…
