Entombent or Lamentation, Oil on Canvas, Flemish School, 17th Century

US$4,094.15

About

Descent oil on canvas. Flemish school, 17th century. In the foreground of the painting is located, in the center, the body of dead Christ, supported by a male figure and with Mary Magdalene taking one of his hands; in the background, the Virgin Mary appears with her arms crossed over her chest and embraced by Saint John the Evangelist; in the background, part of the cross and a ladder can be seen through which another male figure descends, holding the Crown of Thorns in one hand. Presenting in the composition José de Arimatea and Nicodemus and part of the cross, this theme is linked to the Descent. The attitude of the rest of the characters is the usual one in the theme of the crying on the body of the dead Christ. In composition and style the work recalls in some details outstanding works of the Flemish school such as the engraving dated before 1619 of the Life Series of the Virgin of Hieronymus Wierix (with clear differences), and others somewhat more "popular" as the Triptych of the Anonymous Flemish Descent dating from the 16th century that is preserved in the Álava Museum (Vitoria). Also, you can see a sense of "lack of space" that is already found in Flemish masters of the Renaissance on some occasions (Lucas van Leyden, Rogier van der Weyden, etc)." • Size: 130 x 6 x 161 cms.
