    Comments: whether this painting was done in color or not, it still looks amazing, and I finds look much more appreciative in black and white as I use my imagination to do the coloring =)...
    p.s I find this website very useful for my research for fine art.
    Thank you!

    Comments: it is in black and white because the origanal was destroyed in WW2, and they aren't sure exactly how the colors should be

    Comments: The reason the piece is in black and white is because the original was destroyed. this is just a reproduction of what we think it looks like.

    Comments: this reproduction comes from an old photograph, that's why its black and white. and yes, it was destroyed in ww2.

    Comments: I think this painting is amazing. The way Mantegna managed to convey a sense of perspective is extraudinary. There is so much comotion and yet the eye always leads you to the man kneeling down.
