The Deposition and the Entombment, Anonymous, c. 1290

panel, h 18.5cm × w 18cm. More details

These two panels are probably fragments from a larger ensemble devoted to the Passion of Christ. The artist followed established conventions for depicting grief and sorrow through gesture. This approach was characteristic of the stiff, rather formulaic style derived from Greek and Byzantine models that was prevalent in 13th-century Italy.
