The Lamentation

The drawing is in woodcut style, but with a conspicuously strong feeling for tone in its broad areas of shading. The influence of Dutch art may well be present. Although this drawing does not use the same linear language, it still possesses something of the painterly character of the woodcuts of Lucas van Leyden.
