Christ's Flagellation -17th century Flemish School

Painting oil on panel 30 x 30 cm without frame and 48 x 48 cm with an ancient coeval frame from the 17th century Flemish school, depicting the flagellation of Christ.

In art the various moments of Jesus' torture on the morning of Good Friday are usually depicted without following the exact sequence of events, in many cases the actions carried out against Jesus are carried out almost simultaneously.

In the case of more isolated scenes the most important and most frequent, for a matter of pathos, is the representation of the scourging carried out with whips or brambles.

In this panel the scene takes place in a security cell, where some people almost happily witness the scourging.
A soldier places the crown of thorns on Jesus' head almost smiling, while another torturer tied to the cell holds out a marsh reed, mocked by a scepter, while Jesus wears a blue vest, mocking parody of the purple mantles of the emperors.

The brutality of the blows suffered by Christ is summarized by our painter who portrays the executioner and the characters with a fierce face almost on the verge of a caricature, making us understand that such dullness and violence is always possible in the human being.
