Horace Pippin, The Crucifixion
This is the Crucifixion by Pennsylvania artist, Horace Pippin. Pippin was a self taught folk artist.
Caspar David Friedrich, The Cross in the Mountains
In contrast to Pippin's work, Friedrich painted in the romantic style of the 19th century. The highlight of this period is bringing together man and nature. Here the artist makes Christ the one reconciling man and nature, bringing together the conscious and unconscious.
