This is probably my favourite painting of the High Renaissance period. It is Pietro Perugino's Crucifixion triptych. Shadowed somewhat by the more famous Raphael Mond Crucifixion, I think it is much more worthy. Perugino is, of course, better remembered for his famous fresco in the Sistine Chapel, The Delivery of the Keys. Enjoying a nice piece of Religious art (also marvelling at Ecclesiastical architecture) rather reminds me of Evelyn Waugh's diary entry at Eastertime 1964:
'''Participate' - the cant word - does not mean to make a row as the Germans suppose. One participates in a work of art when one studies it with reverence and understanding.'' (Evelyn Waugh, A Bitter Trial, p.38).
