The Lamentation was made for the Dominican confraternity's oratory, the façade of which was painted with scenes from the Passion of Christ. It portrayed the loving compassion of the Virgin, Mary Magdalene, and other saints as they mourned the death of Jesus and prepared him for the grave.
The bottom of the painting is damaged.
