Catalogue Note

Christoph Schwarz is most notable as a proponent of Venetian painting in southern Germany in 16th century Germany. Schwarz travelled to Italy between 1570-1573, and the influence of his Venetian sojourn is evident in the color palette of Christ on the way to Cavalry. Schwarz enjoyed commercial success during his lifetime and was a court painter in his native Munich during the latter part of his career. Christ on the way to Cavalry was most likely executed after 1580, when the artist was painting small devotional scenes on copper.
