Bosch, Hieronymus (1450-1516)
Christ Child with a Walking-Frame (reverse)Date: 1485-1490
Movement: Renaissance (Northern)
Theme: New Testament
Technique: Oil on wood
Museum: Kunsthistorisches Museum
Dimension: diameter 28 cm
This rather unusual painting on the reverse of the Christ Carrying the Cross depicts a naked child pushing a walking-frame. This is the Christ Child, whose first halting steps clearly parallel Christ struggling with his Cross on the obverse, while the toy windmill or whirligig clutched in his hand probably alludes to the Cross itself. Thus Bosch gives us a touching picture of Christ in all his human frailty as he begins the road to his Passion.
