The Flagellation of Christ.
Attributed to Jacopo Palma the Younger.
Grisaille on canvas laid on panel.
It bears an inscription on the back of the panel: grisaille by Palma.
The model of this Flagellation is known by an engraving of Aegidius Sadeler (1579 – 1629), prepared on the basis of a drawing of Palma the Young appeared on the English art market ten years ago. Palma has addressed this subject of the life of Christ on several occasions, each time interpreted differently (Oratorio dei Crociferi, Venezia, Lion, Museum of Fine Arts, San Francesco della Vigna, Venice). With some differences in the characters left and bottom, our greyness remains very close to the drawing. His style has the same mastery in the contrasting game of shadows and lights and in the solid definition of the characters’ volumes. It could be a small model executed following the English drawing in preparation for its translation into painting.
Palma the Younger, in Italian Palma il Giovane, born Jacopo di Antonio Negretti (Venice around 1548-1550, Venice 14 October 1628) is an Italian Mannerist painter, the little nephew of Palma the Old. The beginning of his artistic production dates from 1565 with his father the painter Antonio Negretti, in Venice. He studied and was influenced by Raphael and Titian. He spent 9 years in Rome, a copy of Michelangelo and Polidoro da Caravaggio, frequented the Roman Mannerists and assimilated the imperatives of the Counter-Reformation while discovering and following the pictorial principles of Zuccaro, Salviati and Santi di Tito. Through his different influences from his contemporaries and their predecessors, he acquired a technical skill and a leading position in the Venetian school but did not train any disciple. His eclecticism brings him religious, historical and mythological subjects, from painting to etching.
Very good state of conservation. In an Italian paper-maché setting of the 17th century.
