Guariento di Arpo, Coronation of the Virgin Altarpiece: Detail, The Arrest of Jesus and The Flagellation
Tempera and gold leaf on panel
Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, California
The artist follows the traditional iconography for these two episodes. On the left, Judas kisses Jesus while the soldiers wait to arrest him and St. Peter cuts off the ear of the high priest's servant. The latter incident is recounted in all four gospels, but only John 18:10 identifies the assailant as St. Peter. In Luke 22:50-51, Jesus heals the ear with a touch; some other images will include the healing, but here Jesus is busy embracing his betrayer.
The scourging of Jesus is mentioned in three of the gospels. In the art he is almost universally shown stripped and tied to a pillar, although these details appear in neither the gospels nor any of the commentaries I have consulted.
