The Flagellation of Christ is a mannerist work by the Florentine artist Stefano Pieri painted in 1572.
The restoration of the painting began in October 2006 and was completed in May 2007. The painting had blackened to such a state that it became unidentifiable. During the restoration process the signature of the artist was also rediscovered, centuries after it was masked beneath layers of thick, darkened varnish which has now been restored.
In 2006, donations by Sir James Hackett of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and funds raised by Le Méridien Phoenicia. This included individual donations placed in collection boxes, which made it possible to restore the painting.
