Lamentation of the Dead Christ
Giovanni Battista Naldini

This composition is related to an altarpiece in the Church of Santa Maria Novella, Florence, executed by Naldini in 1572. It may be a creative variant of it, made for a private patron, rather than simply a copy.

Naldini first trained with Pontormo, but was later influenced by the art of painters such as Andrea del Sarto and Giorgio Vasari.
