Christ on the Cross represents Jesus on the cross before his death. In this painting, he is the lone subject. No other people are shown. The smooth transition of the skin looks flawless and adds a tremendous amount of detail to Christ. Although, much of the detail was put into the main features of Christ and the background seems very bland and plain. A little more details could have put in a sense of location, however, I think this way, all the focus is on Christ, which is what the painting is all about.
