NALDINI, Giovan Battista
(b. ca. 1537, Fiesole, d. 1591, Firenze)

Lamentation over the Dead Christ

1572-73
Oil on poplar panel, 124 x 90 cm
Private collection

This painting dates from around the same time as Naldini's work in the Studiolo at Palazzo Vecchio. The composition is closely related to Naldini's large altarpiece of 1572 in the Church of Santa Maria Novella, Florence. This panel is to be considered an independent work, however, and not just a replica of the Santa Maria Novella painting.
