The Mocking of Christ 

Watermark Angel.

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.

See this other drawing from the same series.

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.
