Large Relief Plaque with the Burial of Christ




Christian Eduard Franke Antiquitäten GmbH


Venice, 16th century

Probably after Guglielmo della Porta (around 1500-1577).

The expert mastery of the technique of the Bas-relief shows itself in the extraordinary three-dimensional effect of the representation. This is illustrated by the exact, perspectival representation of the building in the background as well as in the richly draped, often overlapping robes of the

figures in the foreground.

Cast bronze, with a wonderfully preserved,

original fire gilding.

Height 24 cm, width 19.5 cm.
