“Ecce Homo”.
Charcoal on paper
24” x 18”
1981

These are drawings inspired by paintings of Christ being beaten by people. I don’t remember which artists but probably Titian or El Greco.
It’s strange that at 18 years old I would have been so fascinated by this particular image. At some point I did a painting inspired by a painting by Zurburan of Christ resting after having been beaten.
Unfortunately that painting did not survive since I used materials I made myself in an effort to rediscover how oils paint seemed so much more lustrous in old paintings.
