Lamentation over Christ
Эль Греко
El Greco
In the collection of the Hispanic Society of America is a larger version of the subject, unsigned, in oil on canvas, for which this may be a study. The subject is not repeated in Spain.

A translation in paint of Michelangelo's late sculptured group of the Pieta in Florence Cathedral, at the time in Rome. The pattern and the feeling are the same.
The figures of the Dead Christ, His Mother, SS Mary Magdalene and Joseph of Arimathea make one compact group.
Michelangelo achieved this by his new treatment of form; El Greco by paint, by employing broader, more continuous passages of colour.
The more vivid colours of Rome combine with the richer palette of Venice to convey the intensity of expression demanded by the subject.
The horizontal composition of Venice, more suited to a narrative type of subject than to the single image, is given up and is only very rarely found appropriate in Spain.
