Dornenkrönung Christi

Dornenkrönung Christi

More about this artwork
This painting is one of the most important works in the Alte Pinakothek. It shows a looser painting approach, characteristic of the late Titian. In contrast to a version that was completed twenty-five years earlier (Paris, Louvre) in which the artist chose to show Christ groaning in pain, here Titian shows Christ as a silent sufferer who seems to almost calmly accept his fate. According to 17th century sources this work was part of Titian's own estate.
