Christ Carried to the Tomb

Badalocchio Sisto
(Parma 1585 - after 1620)

The question of the authorship of this work is complex. It is attributed to Sisto Badalocchio and Antonio Carracci, brother of Annibale, who in all likelihood executed the lost prototype of the subject. The painting portrays the moment in which the body of Christ, which has just been taken down from the cross, is about to be deposed into the tomb. At the bottom on the left is Maria with the pious women, while on the right the group of John, Joseph of Arimathea, and Nicodemus, accompanied by Mary Magdalene, is carrying the sheet with the body of Jesus.
