Condition Rating

Drawing: pen/brush in brown, brown wash. Anonymous, German School. Pedigree unknown. Dated: first half of the 17th century, possibly ca. 1611-1630.

Depicted is a handcuffed Christ, being led by soldiers in front of one of his judges (Annas, Caiephas, Pontius Pilate, Herod Antiphas?), possibly Pontius Pilate because of the appearance of a Roman consul’s staff, held by the assistant at the right.
The judge is sitting under a canopy on a rather high elevation, accusingly pointing a stick at Christ. The judge is surrounded by a soldier's captain, two dignitaries and an assistant holding what looks like a Roman consul's staff.
In front of the elevation are armed soldiers, more bystanders, one Roman holding a flagpole, another one holding a rod made of small branches.

Altogether a rather moving scene.

On two sheets of laid paper of approx. 31 x 19/20 cm.each, joined and reinforced at the back with a strip of the same paper. The paper is definitely 17th century, probably German. The paper's watermark shows a rearing deer, depicted in its entirety and with the capital letters ‘BM’ in it’s body.
This watermark most closely resembles that of a Stuttgart, Germany paper mill, dating from ca.1611-1633 (Hauptstaatsarchiv Stuttgart, J-340 Sammlung Piccard 256 or 286, WZIS, Piccard-Online DE8085-PO-82883/82894).
