Coronation of the Virgin with the Holy Trinity and saints

Carlo Crivelli

The Coronation, Crivelli’s last recorded work, is a stiff, crowded and richly decorated scene in which Christ and the Virgin are seated on a throne raised above the ground by a group of angels whose mouths appear to be emitting golden rays. The Dead Christ, on the other hand, is remarkable for its concentrated intensity of expression culminating in the play of the figures’ hands and the book whose pages flutter in a breeze that also causes the candle to gutter.
