Pilate Washing his Hands


Description Provenance Credit
Description The Roman governor, wearing a turban, is seated on a cushioned bench set on a podium. A kneeling page, wearing a fantastic headdress, pours water from a large ewer into a bowl placed on the lap of Pilate. A servant standing nearby grasps a long towel which is thrown across his shoulders. At the right, two guards lead Christ away. The subject is copied after a print of Lambert Hopfer, which was inspired by the corresponding scene in the "Little Passion" of Dürer (B. VIII, no. 10 [180] p. 527).
Provenance Sigismond Bardac Collection, Paris, [date of acquisition unknown] by purchase; Jacques Seligmann, Paris, [date of acquisition unknown] by purchase; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1910, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
