Christ as the Man of Sorrows

Oil on panel. 32.5 x 26.5 cm.

The present panel is a variation of an image of Christ as the man of sorrows painted by Albrecht Bouts around 1495, which is now housed in the Musée des Beaux Arts in Dijon. The reverse of the work bears several marks that provide hints as to its age. Above we see the symbol of the Antwerp guild of St. Luke - two hands and a castle - and slightly below this to the right a clover leaf and double-G. The second mark is that of the panel maker Guillam Gabron (1609-1662) made with his second stamp (cf. Erma Hermens et al.: Looking Through Paintings - The Study of Painting Techniques and Materials in Support of Art Historical Research, Baarn 1998, p. 185, illus. 3.) We would like to thank Suzanne Laemers (RKD) for identifying the panel marks upon inspection of high-resolution photographs.
