Christ carried to the Tomb
Sisto Badalocchio

This event, which is not described in the Gospels, takes place after the Lamentation over the dead Christ at the foot of the cross, and before his Entombment.

This is one of several versions of the subject, all analogous in composition. An autograph version of the painting is in the Patrizi collection, Rome.
