In a golden background, outside the walls of Jerusalem a crowded Crucificion is depicted. The scene is characterized by intense emotional feelings and a dramatic atmosphere, lively moving figures, a large number of horsemen, and a particular emphasis to Mary Magdalene, kneeling at the base of the Cross. These elements are found in works of Gothic art. Other elements, more or less important, come from the Byzantine painting tradition, like the golden background and the two old men talking to each other at the right bottom of the scene. The icon is attributed to the Venetian painter of the mid-14th c. Paolo Veneziano or to his workshop.
