Christ of St John of the Cross is famous throughout the world.
It has been lent to several exhibitions in Europe and America and has been displayed in different locations within Glasgow.
It was first shown in a corner room at Kelvingrove along with other religious paintings. Later it was moved to a special curtained setting on the balcony. Then it became the closing feature of one of the vaulted colonnades of the upstairs corridors.
In 1990 it became the centrepiece of the Art of the Church gallery at Kelvingrove.
In 1993 it was transferred to the new St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art beside Glasgow Cathedral.
It then came back to Kelvingrove for the reopening after restoration in July 2006.
In 2005 Christ of St John of the Cross was voted Scotland’s favourite painting in a poll conducted by The Herald newspaper
