The Flagellation of Christ, a scene from the Passion of Christ which precedes the Mocking of Christ and the Crowning with Thorns. Engraved by Elias van den Bossche (c.1594-1613, fl.) after Christoph Schwarz (1548-92), Munich-based painter and draughtsman who became the Bavarian court's foremost painter of religious pictures during the reign of Duke William V. Probably a reduced copy of a scene first engraved by Jan Sadeler I as part of his Passion after Schwarz.
