Christ appears to look at the seer, turning away from the man that holds him by a rope around his neck. Next to them are two other men. Interesting, symmetrical composition. The crossing arms make the figures appear closer to each other. Many attribute the painting to Giorgione. He and Titian both had close ties with the San Rocco confraternity, who are the most likely commissioners of the work.
