Martin Schongauer biography

This work is linked to John 19:5

This print shows a scene from the Gospel of St John. After the Roman governor Pontius Pilate had him scourged, Jesus was crowned with thornes and presented to the Jewish people. "Behold the man!", John quotes Pilate. In the Latin Bible translation by Hieronymus that became Ecce Homo!

The print is part of a series of twelve Schongauer made about the Passion. Click here for the scene with Veronica.
