Christ Before Pontius Pilate
We might find the faces in this painting, attributed to a follower of Hieronymus Bosch, to be absurdly comical, but the artist wanted to drive home a point. Against the backdrop of the ugliness of fallen man, Jesus is the only one depicted with a calm, beautiful face in this 1520 painting.
