Bouts, Albrecht (Attributed to)

Head of Christ

1500 - 1525. Oil on panel Not on display

The painting is based on an iconographic model created by the painter’s father, Dirk Bouts, but interpreted with greater intensity and realism due to the influence of Hugo van der Goes. The image was used for meditation and shows Christ crowned with thorns wich make blood flow from his head. The blood mixes with the tears on his face.
