According to the Gospels, Jesus, prior to his crucifixion was dressed in a red mantle and a crown of thorns was placed on his head. Blood trickles down his forehead. Soldiers beat him with canes and mock him. Dominico Fetti, a Roman artist who died young, was influenced by Caravaggio’s exaggerated lighting and detailed observation. He was also interested in the lighting effects of the art of the Venetians.
