Context: This is a preliminary design for 'Christ before Pilate,' one of five lunette frescoes in a Passion cycle Pontormo executed between 1523 and 1526 during his stay at the Certosa del Galluzzo, a Carthusian monastery outside Florence. In this drawing, Pontormo experimented with a highly unusual illustration of the scene, which he abandoned in the fresco itself, probably one of the first lunettes he painted in the cycle.
