Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn's Descent from the Cross (1634) is one of his many religious scenes. The piece is oil on canvas and now located in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg. The piece is intriguing stylistically in its unique figural composition and variety of lighting effects. Aside from composition, the painting is quite interesting in terms of its historical context, from the connection between its subject matter and Rembrandt's family situation to its endangered location during World War II.
