Christian Paintings by Annibale Carracci








The Baptism of Christ by Annibale Carracci



The Baptism of Christ by Annibale Carracci

The Baptism of Christ was painted in 1584 by Annibale Carracci (1560-1609) as an altarpiece for the church of San Gregorio in Bologna. He was born in Bologna and was the most important member of an influential family of painters that included his elder brother Agostino and their cousin Lodovico.

It shows Jesus' baptism in the River Jordan by John the Baptist. In the Gospels John believed he would only prepare the way for Jesus. He pointed to Jesus and declared "Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world."

Mocking of Christ by Annibale Carracci








Mocking of Christ by Annibale Carracci



Mocking of Christ was painted by Annibale Carracci in 1596. It is in Pinacoteca Nazionale, Lucca, Italy.




The Roman soldiers mocked Jesus as the false "King of the Jews." They placed a crown of thorns on his head which as a parody of a King's crown. The thorns possibly came from a plant later known as "Christ Plant" which grows long pointed barbs.
