Giovanni Bellini: 'The Dead Christ supported by Angels'
The dead Christ is supported by grieving angels. Bellini made such images both as individual works and as parts of altarpieces. This picture was probably for private meditation. It is intended to focus the believer on Christ as the sacrifice for human sin.

This is considered an early work by Bellini.
