"For me a great work of art is something that goes beyond the image it's depicting." -Nadine Orenstein on Rembrandt's Christ Crucified between the Two Thieves: The Three Crosses

Christ Crucified between the Two Thieves: The Three Crosses is printed on vellum, a material that, according to Curator Nadine Orenstein, "keeps the ink hovering on the surface," making the image even richer. Rembrandt printed multiple versions of this work; compare details in three of them.
