'Ecce Homo', after Guido Reni
This drawing was done by Louisa Herschel when she was 15 years old. Ecce Homo (behold the man) is what Pontius Pilate is reported to have said when presenting Jesus to the crowd demanding his crucifixion. The words have since come to signify a particular type of devotional image of Jesus wearing a crown of thorns, going to his death. Versions of the painting by Guido Reni (1575-1642) hang in galleries around Europe (including the National Gallery, London). A copy of the painting would have been provided by the Herschels' art tutor for his students to copy as part of their education.
