Ecce homo, Master of the Brunswick Monogram (active c. 1520-1545) Southern Netherlands, 1525-1535, Oil on panel. Ecce homo means 'Behold the Man': at the top of the stairs, the arrested Christ is shown to the people who demand his crucifixion. The painter set this important biblical story in an imaginary city of his own time. Daily life continues as usual: building work goes on, there is a market, and ships are being unloaded in the harbour.
