After Carravaggio. 56 x 42. This splendid painting is from the original in the Cardinal Fesch Gallery. It is a true copy of that work, which is now pronounced one of the best paintings in the world. A Roman soldier is crowning the Saviour with thorns. The Saviour's face is one of great beauty in feature and expression. The vagabond mocking, is a fine characteristic of the animal man as contrasted with the Divine Christ. Few works are more impressive. [P. 56.]
