Giotto at the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Strasbourg France
December 6, 2012 MuseumChick
I want to answer my own question that I asked you in my Giotto Art Book giveaway, “Have you ever seen Giotto’s work in person?”
The “Crucifixion” is Giotto’s painting on wood that he did in 1319. It has a gold base and stands small at about 17 inches tall.
The Crucifixion become a classic subject in Tuscan workshops in the first half of the Trecento (14th century Italy). The critic Roberto Longhi noted in the Crucifixion of Strasbourg was a perspective often used in later works of Giotto.
Don’t forget, you have just a few more days to enter my holiday giveaway for a brand new copy of Giotto, Second Edition by Francesca Flores d’Arcais (Value $135) by leaving a comment at my Holiday Giveaway! Giotto Art Book post.
