Christ crowned with thorns; a variety of leering figures surround the placid Christ who sits in the centre of the scene with his hands bound by a rope; a soldier in armour places the Crown of Thorns over Christ's head while a kneeling figure on the left offers a reed; after Anthony van Dyck. 1795 Hand-coloured mezzotint with etching
