oil on canvas, h 115cm × w 161cm. More details

Farinati was the leading painter of Verona, Italy, and in his day as famous as Tintoretto and Veronese. He devised this dramatic composition around 1565, and later painted several more versions of it. The gestures of the crowded figures – such as the extended arm of the young man at the left – contribute to the picture’s dynamism. Jesus catches the attention of all gathered round, even the ass.
