The Crowning with Thorns

Ca. 1754. Oil on canvas Not on display

This canvas was part of a series on the Passion that decorated the private oratory of Ferdinand VI in the Buen Retiro palace until 1808. Giaquinto establishes a contrast between Christ’s submission and resignation and the violence of the torturers as they humiliate him, brutally placing the crown of thorns on his head. The artist’s Roman training is evident in the classical poses of the figures.
