BELLINI, Giovanni
(b. ca. 1426, Venezia, d. 1516, Venezia)

Lamentation over the Dead Christ

Oil on canvas, 444 x 312 cm
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice

The painting originates from the now demolished church of Santa Maria dei Servi in Venice. At the left to the central group of the Madonna and the dead Christ one of the Maries and Joseph of Arymathaea are represented, while at the right Magdalene and a monk (St Benedict?) can be seen. The collaboration of Bellini's workshop is assumed.
