    Title: The Carrying of the Cross (Vienna)



    Medium: Oil on Panel

    The two murderers have arrived on Golgotha while Jesus is on his way, pushed on by the crowd. A priest is taking confession of one the murderers - quite an anachronism. This panel was once the left panel of a triptych. The rest probably showed scenes from the Passion as well. Bosch made at least two more paintings on this subject: one is in Madrid, the other in Gent.
