Many of Chagall’s artworks could be described as romantic, lively, imaginative, and filled with brilliant colors. This work of art by Chagall highlights the suffering of Jesus, and is done in black and white. This is clearly no error on Chagall’s part, as he realizes the seriousness of the moment and the need to document it without color. Chagall has placed ‘INRI’ on the cross above Christ's head, meaning “Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews." He has also inserted the menorah (a symbol of the Jewish faith) to the right of Jesus’ body, and possibly inserted Mary to the far right of the composition, away from the crowd of onlookers.
