After the Dutch sculptor Louis Royer won the Prix de Rome, he spent four years studying in Rome, then the leading centre for European sculpture. Among the works he created there was this figure of Christ, crowned with thorns, at the moment of his presentation to the people. Hence the title Ecce homo: ‘Behold the man’.
