Marco ZOPPO , about 1432 - about 1478

The Dead Christ supported by Saints


Date: about 1465
Medium: Egg on wood
Dimensions: 26.4 x 21 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1857

This painting is likely to have been made in Venice, where Zoppo chiefly worked.

The body of the crucified Christ is shown propped up in the tomb. Saint John the Baptist stands behind a parapet with another saint, wearing a long beard and a cowl, who places his hands carefully upon Christ's head.

The back of this painting is decorated to imitate marble, suggesting that it was an independent work, made for private devotion.
