Marco Zoppo: 'The Dead Christ supported by Saints'
This painting is likely to have been made in Venice, where Zoppo chiefly worked.

The body of the crucified Christ is shown propped up in the tomb. Saint John the Baptist stands behind a parapet with another saint, wearing a long beard and a cowl, who places his hands carefully upon Christ's head.

The back of this painting is decorated to imitate marble, suggesting that it was an independent work, made for private devotion.
