The Dead Christ supported by Angels

The dead Christ, wearing the crown of thorns and displaying his wounds, is supported by two angels. Formerly catalogued as an early work by Giulio Cesare Procaccini (1574 - 1625) of Milan, most recently the painting has been attributed to the little known Fra Paolo Piazza da Castelfranco who worked in the Veneto in the late 16th century.
