Un’aggiunta per il giovane Ribera

The paper focuses on a new, powerful Crowning with Thorns by Jusepe de Ribera, which can be dated to a very early phase of the painter’s Italian path; if the reference to Caravaggio’s prototype formerly in the Giustiniani Collection and now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is undeniable, on the other hand the fluidity of the pictorial mixture reveals a strong and less obvious assimilation of the Emilian culture, following the main line that goes from Correggio to the Carracci. This feature resonates with the importance of the master’s stay in Parma, as reported by the sources; a rare example of this conjuncture is the Lamentation over the Dead Christ from the Farnese collection and today in Capodimonte, for which the present study confirms a full attribution to Ribera.
