The Ecce Homo by Murillo that belonged to the Granados collection shows Christ, who appears represented from the torso, just from under the chest. The light, which bathes the effigy from above, is concentrated on the upper part of the face and shoulder of the figure of Jesus, concentrating the viewer's attention on these points. His body appears slightly rotated presenting itself in three quarters, while the head is turned to one side, diverting the gaze to the side, thus creating a rupture in the frontal nature of the theme. In the same way, compositional verticality is also subtly broken by the face slightly inclined and by the mantle, of an intense red tone, that breaks diagonally the composition, while from the knot that sustains it, the shades of its folds are described in all directions, creating an effect of compositional complexity, within the apparent simplicity. The cane that is held by an almost imperceptible hand gives the painting a touch of color that separates it from a total two-color. This balance is commonplace in Murillo's work, both in simple compositions and in the most ambitious ones.
