Having been flagellated and ridiculed with a crown of thorns and a purple robe, Jesus is presented to the Jewish people. Behold the man has been represented by the greatest painters in an attempt to translate Christ’s feelings. By painting only the bust, Fr Martin focuses all the attention on the exhausted and silent face of Christ. The strong black contours, the orthogonal colour pattern and the absence of depth make an obvious link with contemporary stained glass.
