‘Lamentation’, by Fra Bartolomeo

From Fra Bartolomeo [March 28, 1472 – October 6, 1517], Lamentation, 1511-12 – Galleria Palatina, Florence

Deep emotion presented soberly and gracefully is the hallmark of Fra Bartolomeo. The Pietà at the centre evokes pity, while on either side, the grieving evangelist John, the beloved disciple, and Mary Magdalen hold Christ but do not touch him directly.
