Interpretation
Raphael created a great interpretation of life right after Jesus’s crucifixion in this painting. The Mond Crucifixion was a picture portraying what Jesus and some other spectators looked like after he was crucified. Underneath Jesus, nailed to the cross, are four people including Mary Magdalene, John the Evangelist, Mary, Jesus’s mother, and St. Jerome. Also there are two angels holding chalices catching Jesus’s Blood (Catholics, at Mass, drink “Jesus’s blood,” really blessed wine). With the vibrant colors standing out from the detailed, proportionalized background and flawless lines of Jesus’s cross, you can see why Raphael is known for his perfection and the gracefulness in his art work. Lastly, unlike the Middle Ages or Roman times, all of the faces in this painting are different, and have specific details, rather than them all being the same. All in all the Mond Crucifixion definitely portrays Raphael’s artistic traits and personality with his impeccable work.
