- This interesting panel marks the transition from a fully fledged Gothic to a Renaissance milieu. The tripartitie architectural division of the lower section is similar to "La Storia di San Giuliano", attributed to Masaccio (1401-1428), at the Horne Museum in Florence.
- The central part of the painting depicts Christ, stripped of his clothing, and bound to a column in the center, looking down sorrowfully as the two men prepare to strike him. While on the left side a group of grief stricken women, most probably including Holy Mary and Mary Magdalen, try to hear or see what is happening behind the closed door where Christ is being flogged. On the right side, Saint Nicholas of Bari, Saint Stephen and Saint Damian look at the flagellation and pray. The apex depicts the last Judgement with Christ in the centre in all his Magesty, surrounded by angels and saints.
