Explore the paintings

This section of an altarpiece showing the dead Christ supported by two angels is probably a comparatively early work by Schiavone. It is thought to come from S. Niccolò, Padua.

The Italian word 'pietà' means both piety and pity. It refers to a depiction of the dead Christ who is usually mourned by his mother the Virgin Mary, and sometimes by angels and other saints.
