A sketch for a larger picture. The painter has represented the Saviour on the summit of the mount; Cymon the Cerenean still bears the cross, surrounded by Roman soldiers. Over the brow of the hill is seen (obscurely) the crucifixion of one thief: in the foreground, on the right of the spectator, soldiers are extending the other thief upon the instruments of torture. On the left is the Centurion: in the attitude of adoration, and his family behind him. The High Priest and soldiers are above the Centurion; and beyond them a group, of Mary the Mother, Mary Magdalen, Mary the daughter of Cleophas, and John. In the center of the foreground is the wife of Pilate, surrounded by her female attendants. A Pharisee, higher up, is disputing with Joseph of Arimathea, and beyond them is Lazarus and his sisters. The time is the approach of darkness. A crowd of spectators, disciples, soldiers, &c., fill the sketch; from which, the artist painted a large picture some years ago. N.A. See No. 14. [P. 13; see entry 01510014 for the artist's biography.]
