Abstract

The painting of Christ in the Ecce Homo iconographic type is a work of undetermined history and authorship. It might have been created at the end of the 19th century or in the first half of the 20th century. It depicts a martyred Christ in a type defined in the history of art as Ecce Homo ("behold the man"). This is a representation of Passion, i.e. relating to the Passion of Christ. The name of the theme refers to the words that Pontius Pilate said to the Jewish people after the capture of Christ. A description of these events can be found in the Gospel of Saint John (Jn 19, 1-6).
