Italian, Venetian: 'The Dead Christ'

Explore the paintings

The subject is derived from the legend of the 'Cristo di San Gregorio': Christ is said to have appeared to Saint Gregory the Great at Mass in Rome, at Santa Croce in Gerusalemme or elsewhere.

The original image in Santa Croce was engraved by Israel von Meckenem, and corresponds for the most part with this picture.
