The artwork, originating from Palazzo Barbarigo della Terrazza and donated to the church in 1794, was created by the artist during his brief visit to Venice in September 1622.
The pathos of the scene, focused on the suffering of the bleeding Christ, is further enhanced by the dark background and tumultuous storm clouds.
