Painting of Christ's crucifixion by Peter Howson goes on display in Glasgow
"A painting by Scottish artist Peter Howson of Christ in the crucifixion pose went on display today after being loaned to Glasgow for at least a year.
A "STRIKING" painting of the crucifixion by renowned artist Peter Howson has gone on display to the public.
The work, which was completed more than two years ago, depicts Christ in the pose of crucifixion without the cross.
It went on show at the St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art in Glasgow today after its owner loaned it to the city for at least a year.
The large work, which is more than two metres high and just over two metres wide, is hailed as one of the most dramatic paintings of Christ completed by the Scottish artist."
