When Delacroix visited Antwerp in 1850, he made copies after works by Rubens, whose works inspired him throughout his career. This drawing derives from Rubens’s canvas Christ Wounded by a Lance, which became the source for a pastel, an oil sketch, and a painting as well as numerous drawings. In this sheet, freely drawn from memory, Delacroix used Rubens’s medium of choice—pen and brown ink with brown wash—to focus on the dramatically arrayed figures.
