Circle of Cornelis Cornelisz. van Haarlem (Haarlem 1562-1638)
Ecce Homo oil on canvas 99.5 x 188 cm. (39 1/8 x 74 in.)
The present lot was inspired by the drawings of Hendrik Goltzius (see E.K.J Reznicek `Die Zeichnungen von Hendrik Goltzius, Utrecht, vol II, p. 269, pl. K40), and an engraving by Goltzius exists of the central grouping (see The Illustrated Bartch, vol.3, p. 41, no. 34)
An attribution to Gerrit Pietersz. Swellinck (Amsterdam 1566-1645) has been suggested.
