Christ Mocked and Crowned with Thorns

Spagnoletto (Jusepe de Ribera)

Some scholars have questioned the authenticity of the signature and date (“Jusepe de Ribera espanol / F 1638”) in the bottom right-hand corner of the painting, which may be a workshop copy of a lost original. Ribera, also known by the nickname of Spagnoletto, moved to Naples in 1616, becoming one of the city’s Caravaggesque artists most loyal to the master’s naturalism.
