Attributed to Antonio Cicognara: 'Mystic Figure of Christ'

Explore the paintings

Christ is depicted seated, apparently on a tree trunk, beneath a barrel vault. He wears the crown of thorns and has a rope tied around his neck - objects associated with the Mocking and the Carrying of the Cross. This painting is not intended to illustrate any particular episode in the Passion of Christ, but is a symbolic representation of his sufferings.

The reverse of the panel is marbled. It has been associated, on grounds of style, with the work of Marco Zoppo. It is closer to the work of Cicognara, which was of Ferrarese inspiration.
