1 300,00 €


Image of the Ecce Homo, Jesus of Nazareth, painted in oil on board and belonging to the 18th-Century Italian School. This piece shows the tear-stained face of Jesus, with an expression mixing pain and serenity. The technique reminds us of the one used by Leonardo da Vinci in his Portrait of Saint John the Baptist an almost monochrome face emerging from a dark background. Jesus is portraited as a young man with eyes full of tears, which run all over his face too. The artist accomplishes a truly intense effect, almost as if Our Lord was alive. The Ecce Homo icon comes from a passage of the New Testament where Pontius Pilate presents Jesus to the crowd after torturing Him, and pronounces the sentence Here is the Man (Ecce Homo in Latin). This representation is part of a concrete typology known as Vir Dolorum (Sorrowful Male) which shows Jesus in attitude of sadness, pain or suffering. The painting is adorned with an antique water-gilt wooden frame whose warm glow increases the spiritual power of Our Lords face. This Ecce Homo, Jesus of Nazareth in oil on board and original from the Italian School will shine in the most beautiful stance, providing also a deeply serene feel.
