RIBERA, Jusepe de
(b. 1591, Játiva, d. 1652, Napoli)

Mater Dolorosa

Oil on canvas, 77 x 64 cm
Staatliche Museen, Kassel

This Mater Dolorosa is from the period of Rivera's creative maturity, productive of his most important works. The influence of Titian, revered by Ribera as by other great masters of the High Renaissance, can still be clearly seen.
