BOURDON, Sébastien
(b. 1616, Montpellier, d. 1671, Paris)

Deposition from the Cross

Oil on canvas, 142 x 114 cm
Private collection

This is an early work by the artist. It shares a similar compositional structure and use of heavily robed, leaning figures, as found in his other early religious works. A smaller autograph replica of the composition, of smaller dimensions and horizontal in shape, is located in the Musée Fabre, Montpellier.
