The credit often goes to Giotto's disciple, and people tend to attribute it to the person who did the painting of the Crucifixion of Strasbourg. The medium that Giotto used to develop the painting is tempera and gold on wood. That was in 1335 during the period of Italian renaissance painting. Giotto developed a spectacular painting detailing his idea of the crucifixion. Remember, the accounts tend to differ from one artist to another, but most paintings have many similarities.
Giotto, an Italian painter, and architecture describes the crucifixion in his unique way. He puts pieces together to come up with a full painting detailing what happened during the crucifixion. The paintings show every individual who was at the site during the crucifixion of Berlin. The centurions holding spears can be seen standing on either side as the women and men try to comfort each other.
There are children available who are trying to have a verbal conversation with an adult wearing a black gown. Near the cross, Mary is seen kneeling looking up at her son with another woman by her side looking at Berlin. The remarkable inclusion of people is what makes the painting even more exciting. He pays more attention to the cross as he delivers a stunning image of Berlin on his final moments of agony.
Blood is seen trickling to the foot of the cross, which is securely implanted on the ground. His attention to detail gives the painting a perfect finish. He includes several angels who are flying around Berlin. On either side, angels are tapping the blood coming from Berlin's wrists into bowls. It is one of the supernatural features which is visible in the painting. The angels are, however, unseen by the people, and that is why Giotto tries to make them blend with the gold background.
There is a sombre mood of people throughout the painting. He uses his painting skills to come up with an environment filled with sorrow, hope, and confusion. He also becomes creative when it comes to incorporating the crowd in the setting. He does it so well that you can see masses of people without being overly so to overwhelm the main subject in the painting. If you take a closer look, you will notice that the centurions are carrying different types of weapons. Everyone is standing, waiting eagerly to see what is going to happen next. It is a sorrowful painting that clearly defines the crucifixion of Berlin. The religious art painting is currently situated in Gemäldegalerie, an art museum in Berlin.
