Diptych with Scenes from Christ's Passion


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 306

These Passion scenes closely correspond to both Parisian manuscript illumination and to sculptural examples. Because a large number of similar diptychs survive, it is thought that a single Parisian workshop produced them. The narrative reads from left to right, top to bottom: the Entry into Jerusalem and the Last Supper; Christ washing his disciples' feet and the Agony in the Garden; the Betrayal of Christ and the Crucifixion.
