Christ as the Man of Sorrows

1525 - 1550. Oil on panel.
Not on display

Wearing the crown of thorns, Jesus sits on Golgotha with his hands tied to the cross. The path to Calvary is visible in the left middle ground at the gates of Jerusalem. On the right, the followers approach mount Calvary in the background, where the crosses of Christ and of the two thieves stand. In this work, Isenbrant separates the story of the crucifixion from that of the Passion of Christ, which is in the foreground. This image of devotion was intended to be the subject of meditation by believers, for whose salvation Jesus died on the cross. The landscape clearly owes much to those of Joachim Patinir, who was a generation earlier than Isenbrant.
