"Pieta In Polychrome Majesty Beginning Of The XVII Eme Century"Beautiful pieta in polychrome majesty dating from the beginning of the 17th century.
the virgin Mary appears there seated in majesty on a gilded throne, she is dressed in a finely worked polychrome garment resumed in carving in the gilding.
her gaze is turned towards her son, whom she supports in her arms.
the expression on his face is one of great pain and intense grief.
The sculptor was able to convey the expression of the mother but also that of the son who appears with his face relaxed, almost as if asleep and liberated.
the sculptor rightly gave a beautiful intensity to this pieta which gives off a lot of expressiveness.
it is a very beautiful sculpture from southern Europe, in good condition, despite some lack of gilding and polychromy.
a restoration on the base in the front in the center, and a graft on the mantle on the left wrist of the virgin.
a very beautiful sculpture quite fascinating and early in time.
