The composition may have been suggested by drawings of sixteenth-century carved stones at Cashel made by the artist about 1941 and included in the Arts Council exhibition, 1959 (85 and 89). Two preparatory sketches in gouache for ‘The Crucifixion’ belong to Derek Hill and Dr R. R. Woods (the latter lent to the 1959 Arts Council exhibition, No.62).
