Baroque Painting Jesus with Thorn Crown and Black Death Wounds
German Baroque painting depicting Jesus. It is a dark and impressive painting which shows all the suffering of Our Lord. His skin is pale, he has dark circles around his eyes and dark lips. His body shows pest wounds. The tear drops on his cheek are touching.
The painting is unsigned.
The condition is good. There are some tiny painting losses, hard noticeable, the age crazing is wonderful. The surface shows some dark spots which could come from an old varnish. I do not feel them annoying, but I recommend a professional restore, if you want to remove them.
The canvas seems to be lined on the original stretcher. Some handmade iron nails present. Canvas to the corners loosely, would not stand out under the frame.
The painting is framed. The frame is original (rare!) and has still the original iron hanging. Simple dark baited wooden frame with a small former golden baguette now blackened due age and probably candle fume in the monastery. Some age traces present.
The painting measures 19.6 x 23.6 inches (without frame), 23.6 x 27.2 (with frame).
The painting comes from a monastery in my area; German provenance and dated around 1750. I bought it together with a beautiful depiction of Mater Dolorosa. This painting is also listed in my shop.
