The Met Open Access Images The Flagellation of Christ Date: ca. 1492–1503 Culture: Italian, Milan Medium: Gold, silver, partly enameled gold, gilt-silver frame Dimensions: Overall: 8 5/8 × 5 1/8 in. (21.9 × 13 cm) Classification: Metalwork-Gold and Platinum Credit Line: Gift of J. Pierpont Morgan, 1917 Accession Number: 17.190.860a, b The inscription at the base of the relief refers to Giovanni Borgia (1446-1503), bishop of Monreale, who was created cardinal in 1492 by his uncle Pope Alexander VI, and the identification is confirmed by the coat of arms painted on the spandrel between the two arches. The high quality of the goldsmith's work has led this pax to be attributed to Caradosso Foppa (ca.1452-ca. 1526). The finial figure and the enameled roundels on the base are later additions.
