Flagellation of Christ

Luciani Sebastiano called Sebastiano del Piombo
(Venice c. 1485 - Rome 1547)


Confused in the past with the other, and higher quality, copy of Luciani’s celebrated Flagellation present in the collection, the painting has been ascribed to various artists in the circle of the Emilian Mannerists, in particular to Denis Calvaert (Antwerp 1540 – Bologna 1619). However, this attribution has not persuaded all scholars, who have suggested an earlier dating of 1535–1540 for the work, later in any case than the other version in the gallery.
