In the Crucifixion of Saint Andrew, Caravaggio captures exactly the moment that Andrew transitions from life to death. According to some legends, Saint Andrew continued to preach from the cross to a large crowd for two straight days. At that time, the crowd demanded his release from the cross, and the governor agreed with this request to prevent riots. However, right at the moment that they wanted to take Saint Andrew of the cross alive, the arms of the executioners froze, and God honored the prayer of Saint Andrew to die on the cross. #Art #Artwork #ArtHistory #Painting #Caravaggio #Crucifixion #Andrew #StAndrew #SaintAndrew #Life #Death #Transition #Legend #Baroque #Painter #Artist #Cleveland #clevelandmuseumofart
