Description: Christ and the Woman Taken in Adultery. The figures are presented in a close group in the foreground. Christ is shown at the centre of the composition, placed directly in front of a classical column. This column, while conveying the historic period, acts as a compositional aid to direct the viewer's eye towards the figures of Christ and the woman. The artist has used colour and light to distinguish the figures
