Footnotes

  • The present relief would have originally belonged to a larger multi-figured Passion altarpiece and depicts the fifth Station of the Cross. It would probably have been positioned to the left of a central depiction of the Crucifixion. From the beginning of the 16th century narrative altarpieces became increasingly more sophisticated, reaching their peak around 1520-40.
    The distinctive physiognomy of the central soldier in the present relief has comparables in South German altarpieces of this type, although similar compositions were also produced in Brabant during this period.
