This is Graham Sutherland’s powerful #crucifixion from 1946 which the #tate acquired in 1947. It belongs to a series of studies for a large commissioned Crucifixion that the artist worked on for a church in Northampton. Sutherland’s writhing, #tortured figure echoes earlier, equally mutilated paragons of the crucified #christ. His aggressively outstretched arms that seem to bubble with a rotten entropy; the claw-like, taut, oversized fingers paralysed by the nails in his palms; the emaciated body with a hollow chest and a dynamically delineated skeletal rib-cage; the head turned down and to the left which is laureated by an exaggerated #crownofthorns. All of these elements are directly inspired by #matthiasgrunewald’s exhausting yet exhilarating #isenheimaltarpiece from 1516. A #painting that attempted to share the physical agony, fear and desperation of Christ whilst undergoing this hideous punishment. Sutherland’s forceful, animated depiction, too, speaks of the fleshy failure of the human #body as opposed to other depictions where the #crucified Christ shares no corporeal pain, but rather acts as a spiritual emblem for #forgiveness, often looking up towards the sky as he speaks to God asking him to exculpate man’s ignorance. Graham Sutherland’s somewhat cubistic plasticity here comes directly out of #picasso and, specifically, his own versions of Grünewald’s masterpiece. Picasso made several drawings after the Isenheim Altarpiece which he published in the French magazine, “Minotaure” in 1933. This, in turn, motivated many passages of Picasso’s #guernica from 1937 and the various related studies he made for his chef d’oeuvre. Like #grunewald and Picasso, #sutherland wanted to continue their efforts to show humanity the chaos and torment of the contemporary world in which they lived. His “Crucifixion” thus utters their language; one that fiercely and turbulently binges on a vocabulary of harrowing loss and annihilation, simultaneously speaking of a man on a #cross; a plagued body in crisis; a world at #war. #grahamsutherland died #otd in 1980. He was 72. #mcwrip#art#artist#britishart

Der Weg war längst nicht mehr zu sehen,
sie mussten dennoch weiter gehen,
die Gewissheit wuchs, sie warn verloren,
der Pfad zu Ende, gerade geboren.
Man sah die Hand vor Augen nicht,
im tiefsten Abgrund brennt kein Licht,
doch stehen zu bleiben kam nicht in Frage,
das sichere Ende in dieser Lage.
Die Zweige schlugen ins Gesicht,
so sahen sie den Abzweig nicht,
die Rettung wäre gewiss nicht weit,
die Uhr sie tickt, es läuft die Zeit.
Wie auf Schienen, fremdgesteuert,
so hätten sie später gewiss beteuert,
voran getrieben, von des Lebens Glucke,
das Kind geopfert, dem Leistungsdrucke.
