Passion with Benvenuto di Giovanni

Salvate Omnes,
'loping' along with the Easter spirit, the holiest of the Christian holidays but this year completely 'sold out' by the Roman church, I would like to bring to your attention this XV century Italian painter Benvenuto di Giovanni.

Why maestro Benvenuto - well, he was very good, and his religious art provides plenty of information for the equestrian aficionado and historian, I believe it merits to display some of his artwork here.
Agony in the Garden, Christ Carrying the Cross, The Crucifixion, Christ in Limbo and The Resurrection (c.1491) located at the National Gallery of Ar at Washington DC.





Happy Easter
