Munn explores the theme of the Passion of Christ in two styles of painting, spanning the late 1920s and early 1930s. Untitled (Crucifixion) is likely the first to explore the theme in dark brown, rich greys, and blacks with block figures inserted into abstracted land forms. These elemental forms are present in her charcoal drawings from the same period. This work is also stylistically related to Still Life, c. 1925.
