Flemish school, 16th century
The Mocking of Christ
Traces of black chalk, pen and brown ink, brush and brown wash, heightened with white.
332 x 237 mm – 13 1/16 x 9 5/16 in.
This Flemish anonymous drawing bears medium similarities – brush and brown wash heightened with white gouache – with drawings by Frans Floris but do not share their mannerist tendency. It probably belonged to a series illustrating the Passion of Christ and was maybe preparatory for painted panels or prints.
Condition report: Drying mark in the middle of the sheet, folding in upper right corner, old backing tape on the verso, white heightening slightly oxidized.
