The Dead Christ with Mary Magdalene and Four Angels

Turchi Alessandro called Orbetto
(Verona 1578 - Rome 1649)

The painting was probably produced by Turchi between 1616 and 1617, when he received payments from Scipione Borghese for several unspecified pictures. A “Dead Christ in Stone”, undoubtedly to be identified as this painting, is also cited by Manilli in 1650. It is one of the first works the Veronese painter produced in Rome, and it was executed on black slate, which confers a sparking quality to the paint.
