This beautiful wooden sculpture in the round represents Christ at the column. The elegance of the pose and the resigned expression of the Savior here are not without echoing the central figure of the famous Flagellation Group, alternately attributed to Alessandro Algardi (1598-1654) and François Duquesnoy (1594-1643) ).
Our work seems to be inspired by certain variants given to Duquesnoy's chisel where Christ no longer leans against the column, the latter shifting laterally in the composition on the same plane as Christ, by contrast enhancing the grandeur and the thanks to its curvy silhouette.
If the sensual nudity of our Christ and his powerful muscles are reminiscent of the Flemish Baroque, so influenced by the art of Rubens, it is undoubtedly to Italy and more precisely to the Neapolitan area that seems to be attributed to this sculpture.
