Three autograph versions of this Ecce Homo are known today, two of which were identified in 1987 by Prof. Brown (see D. A. Brown, Andrea Solario, Milan 1987, pp. 212-213, nos. 50 and 51). All seem to date to the end of the artist’s time in France.


Despite Christ’s gentle facial features and graceful pose, the image is nevertheless dramatic, recalling the works of Solario and his training with northern Italian masters. 


Unlike the autograph versions, in the present composition Christ’s cloak is tied with a blue ribbon; this composition seems itself to have generated further copies (see for example the sale at the Dorotheum, Vienna, 21 October 2014, lot 4).

Trois versions autographes de cet Ecce Homo sont aujourd’hui connues, dont deux sont répertoriées dès 1987 par le Prof. Brown (voir D. A. Brown, Andrea Solario, Milan, 1987, pp. 212-213, n°50 et 51). Toutes semblent devoir dater de la fin du séjour de l’artiste en France.


La douceur des traits du Christ et la grâce de ses gestes, formant néanmoins une image dramatique, rappellent les œuvres de Solario et son apprentissage auprès des maîtres du nord de l’Italie. 


A la différence des versions autographes, notre composition présente un ruban bleu nouant le manteau du Christ ; cette composition semble elle-même avoir été copiée (voir par exemple la vente au Dorotheum à Vienne du 21 octobre 2014, lot 4).
