France: Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs, La Tour-sur-Tinée - paulsmit
’Jesus before Pontius Pilate.’

	The tenth of twenty panels depicting the Passion of Christ in the Chapelle des Pénitents Blancs at La Tour shows Jesus brought before Pontius Pilate. The Roman prefect washes his hands to show that he will not be responsible for the execution of Christ.
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).
