La Passion du Christ
Jésus au jardin de Gethsemane
Le baiser de Judas, Jésus arrêté
Jésus moqué, flagellé
Christ jugé, Ecce homo
Le chemin de croix
Le Christ en croix
Descente de croix, Pietá
La mise au tombeau
Il est ressuscité
Noli me tangere
Les Très Riches Heures du Duc de Berry Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane f142v c. 1412-1416 This miniature is a very subtly painted mysterious nighttime scene. The only illumination in the garden of Gethsemane comes from the halo of Christ, from a few torches still burning faintly, and from the overturned lantern. On the background falling stars. The scene shows the armed men that came to the olive garden to capture Christ, but fell to the ground when he made himself known.

Michele Parrasio (before 1516–1578), The Dead Christ venerated by Pius V, c. 1572, oil on copperplate, Height: 42 cm; Width: 30 cm, in the collection of the Prado, Not on display. From the website: “Christ lies dead on a bed beside which Pope Pius V kneels, surrounded by angels. Above them, two angels hold a chalice and a communion wafer, symbols of his death and resurrection. On the lower part of the painting, the skeleton of Adam alludes to the first man and the redemption of Original Sin.
The Antwerp Crucifixion representing Christ crucified between two evil-doers, with Mary and John the Evangelist seated on the ground by Antonello da Messina in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp, Belgium (1475).

Detail from The Antwerp Crucifixion representing Christ crucified between two evil-doers, with Mary and John the Evangelist seated on the ground by Antonello da Messina in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Antwerp, Belgium (1475). This is the unfortunate evil-doer on Christ's right side. Incredibly capture of bodily suffering. AM painted three versions of this subject: the Sibiu Crucifixion (Romania 1454), The Antwerp Crucifixion and the London Crucifixion, housed in the National Gallery (1475).
POIGNANT PASSING Paolo Caliari (aka Paolo Veronese). Pieta. c. 1576-82. Oil on canvas. 147.0 x 111.5 cm. The Hermitage, St Petersburg. This dark, moody work by the master of color and light, Veronese, is a marvel. Mary, dressed in monastic garb, supports the dead Christ as an angel, backlit by diffused light, holds up his limp, pierced hand. 16th and 17th-century documentation describing a "painting of a dead Christ" indicate this work was first in the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, Venice
