- Curator's comments
- Part of a Passion series, consisting of fourteen woodcuts.
Titled in Bartsch and Hollstein Christ before Annas, but the mitra and the fact that the priest is tearing his robe identify him as Caiaphas.
Two other impressions of the subject (one on paper, and a proof on vellum) are also extant at the BM.
See Dodgson and Hollstein for the different editions in which the woodcuts were used.
