Christ at the Column

1772. Oil on canvas. Not on display

The painting is one of a series of eight scenes from Christ’s Passion painted by Giovanni Domenico (Giandomenico) Tiepolo as part of a commission from the fathers of the convent of San Felipe Neri de Madrid. The artist made all eight works in Venice. They were presented publicly at the Venetian Piazza San Marco on 31 August 1772, a practice that occurred on specific occasions when works were to leave the city. Nothing is known of the conditions stipulated in the contract extended by the secular clergymen of San Felipe Neri in Madrid, if there was a contract at all. Therefore, no documents demonstrating the possible limitations imposed on the works’ format, total numbers of scenes, size and so on have been identified. However, it does seem possible that limitations existed that decisively affected the artist’s work. This can be deduced from the very low viewpoints and the anatomical deformation of certain figures, which Giandomenico may have employed deliberately to correct optical distortions resulting from the painting being hung at a great height.
