"This is no traditional Christ, who sighs under the burden of the cross, from whom the pain inflicted by the thorny crown extorts tears, and who betrays that it is disagreeable to him to play the redeemer. In this picture we see expressed the noblest feeling of humanity. A soul that grasps the whole world in its love, takes its sins resignedly upon itself. Peacefully and serenely, in the self-inflicted destiny, he bears the pain without complaint. The great eyes look out tenderly to the great end that must be accomplished. Compassion for mankind makes the burden light to him." (Westliche Post.) [P. 8.]
