Giotto's Crucifix, 1317 in Museo Civico in Padua was just so delicate with the drapery. In the real the painting is more green than golden in paint work but the figure is so sensitive on the cross and so sweet for post church redemption painting. Somewhere the Sienese primitives seemed to nominate with an artist like Sassetta. Redeeming, not their sin, happening the blessing of the Virgin Mary for something like consuming Italian wine with the last supper or their very late dinner after a whole day of directing the painting of a church interior.
