Artwork Detail Request a print

Crespi was known for his feathery brushwork, and put the technique to good effect making skillful copies of Venetian painters who had gone before him. This work, in a monochromatic palette, is representative of much of his oeuvre. He began to focus on religious themes from the 1730s, in particular the sufferings of Christ and the saints. A large-scale painting on the theme of the Mocking of Christ can be found in the Pinacoteca Nazionale, Bologna.
