La Grande passion.' (Ecce Homo--Christ Shown to the People) La Presentation au

A large crowd in the foreground gesture towards a group of figures seen in the doorway of a building in the distance at center. The figures in the distance, many holding lances, look at a standing semi-nude man framed in the doorway. Other figures look out of windows onto this open courtyard where the figures have congregated. The crowd in the foreground include a figure at the left holding a tall cross and another figures at the right, standing in shadow with a raised hand.
Jacques Callot
1625
Callot employs a very long horizontal format for his "Christ Presented to the People". The focus of the print is on the crowd in the foreground all gesturing towards the figure of Christ and Pilate shown in the doorway at center.
