Very good condition
Important painting on panel, depicting the suffering face of Christ with his head crowned with thorns in the more traditional image of Ecce Homo.
His gaze is dull with his eyes half closed in a resigned attitude and disfigured by pain.
Christ has been scourged and Pilate presents him to the crowd horribly disfigured by the tortures suffered by pronouncing the famous words "Ecce Homo".
It is one of the most representative and venerated Christian representations of ancient painting, which has seen the great Masters of all Europe try their hand at its creation. Among these, the Spanish and Nordic painters excel in intensity and dramatic realism, especially the Flemish ones
The splendid table is a classic example of sixteenth-century Flemish painting with strong influences from Spanish art, and condenses the pictorial characteristics of these two great schools.
The Author, working between Haarlem and Antwerp in the first half of the 16th century, is inspired by the paintings depicting Christ "Ecce Homo" by Quentin Massys and Dieric Bouts considered the greatest Flemish interpreters of this subject.
The conditions of the painting are excellent without lifting or falling of color, with an evident and pleasant crack that makes the work even more fascinating.
