Christ Before Pilate
Information about author
The bust-length image of Christ (the self-portrait of the artist) is on the right, and the image of a young man is on the left. Christ is depicted in the thorn wreath, with traces of blood on his face and hair. The hands at chest level are tied to a bamboo stick with a rough rope; with one hand Christ holds the beard. On his shoulders there is a red coat, the end of which he holds with the other hand tied. To his left there is Pilate, a young man with a black mustache. His head is tilted, as he is cleaning his nails with a small stick above the copper basin. In the upper left corner there is the painter's signature: “J. Malczewski 1910”.
At the top left there is an author's inscription "J.Malczewski 1910".
