Piety

Lorenzo Lotto

It is a work intensely expressive, which binds
intensifying concerns, and reflections on death
by an artist who is always restless and unconventional,
become perhaps the most gloomy with the approaching of old age.From
the dark background of the image shows the sculptural group and
intensely dramatic, consisting of the Virgin, the Christ and
by St. John. Beautiful is the play of the hands between the Virgin
and the son of the deceased, or the parallelism of the arm of Christ collapsed to
the earth and the arm sagging of the Virgin swooning.
