Summary

The rather crude execution and placement of figures floating in space without reference to a setting would seem to suggest that the author of this sheet has drawn upon several sources, some older and some more recent. The soldiers are based on figural inventions in the supple style of the International Gothic from the beginning of the fifteenth century, while the figure of Christ against the column follows a pattern disseminated later in the century.
