Christ as the Man of Sorrows

Tempera on panel, 62 x 33 cm
Private collection

Images of the Man of Sorrows are commonly encountered in Florentine trecento and early quattrocento in predella paintings, where they are often paired with a scene of the Crucifixion. However, the relatively large size of the present panel suggests that it was not conceived as part of a larger complex but rather it was meant as an independent object of private devotion.
