Catalogue Note

This panel shares many similarities, in composition, in the execution of the hands and the tomb, and in the punchwork of the haloes, with the painting by Michele di Matteo in the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore.1 That work is dated by Federico Zeri to shortly before 1450, and likewise depicts Christ as the Man of Sorrows on the edge of the tomb, with the Madonna and Saint John the Evangelist.

We are grateful to Professor Gaudenz Freuler for endorsing the attribution to Michele di Matteo in full, on the basis of a digital image.

1 Inv. no. 37.738; see F. Zeri, Italian Paintings in the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore 1976, vol. I, p. 198, cat. no. 131, reproduced plate 98.
