The artist decided to focus on the figure of the Son of God, resigning from presenting the accompanying figures or landscape. The painting shows a scene just before Jesus' death, when He raises His head and speaks to God the Father. According to the biblical message, the sky is dark, thanks to which the body of Christ is dramatically emphasized. Baroque artists refrained from presenting in detail the signs of past torment, which is also confirmed on this canvas.
