Catalogue Note

The dramatic lighting and heightened chiaroscuro would suggest a probable dating of around 1705 to 1710 for this work. It may be directly compared to Trevisani's very similar treatment of the same subject, probably painted at much the same date, for Pope Clement XI Albani and now in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna (reproduced in F.R. DiFederico, Francesco Trevisani, 1977, p. 54, cat. no. 58, plate 47). DiFederico further notes a receipt of 1707 attached to the manuscript of Lione Pascoli's early Vite  of Trevisani, published in 1730, now kept in Perugia, in which Trevisani ackowledges payment for a picture representing `un Christo morto portato da due angeli', which may very well refer to the present painting. The source of the commission is not, however, recorded.
