Description  
Few artists have depicted the suffering Christ with greater empathy and tenderness than Guido Reni. Reni conceived the idea of focusing solely on Christ's head and shoulders, at the moment of his greatest suffering, and soon after executed the picture of oval format on copper. This emotionally charged composition proved to be extremely popular and one that Reni returned to on a number of occasions throughout his career, and which exerted a huge influence on later generations, inspiring several engravings and numerous later copies.
