France: Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs, La Tour-sur-Tinée - paulsmit

’Jesus led by two soldiers.’

	The seventh of twenty panels depicting the Passion of Christ in the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows Jesus being led by soldiers to the high priest Caiaphas (detail).
The fresco was executed in 1492 on the chapel's right wall by Currand Bravesi and Guirard Nadal, two of the so-called 'peintres primitifs niçois' (primitive painters of Nice). The painters seem to have left part of the soldiers' garments in an unfinished state.
