Francesco Bonsignori, in the manner of

PIETÀ

Tempera on panel. 87 x 102 cm.

This pieta employs a composition which the Bellini family used very successfully in Venice during the quattrocento. It also experienced great popularity outside of Venice and was received by numerous artists on the Venetian-occupied mainland, such as in Padua and Verona. Thus, the author of this panel was presumably active in one of these cities in the second half of the 15th century. The piece was previously attributed to the Verona artist Francesco Bonsignori, who was active in his hometown and in Mantua.
