"The Way to Calvary," Domenichino, about 1610. Oil on copper. J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles, California | The cross pins Christ to the ground under its weight as he struggles on the way to his Crucifixion. With his mouth parted as if to speak, Christ looks sorrowfully out at the viewer. The large figures and compressed composition enhance the sense of his oppression under the massive cross and the cruelty of his tormentors.
