The Venetian painter Marco Basaiti (born c. 1470), who probably trained in the workshop of Bartolomeo and Alvise Vivarini before orienting himself more to the art of Giovanni Bellini, developed an idiosyncratic pictorial language of remarkable expressiveness in the first decade of the 16th century. This devotional painting, with its motifs reminiscent of northern Alpine panel painting and prints, is among his most striking creations. Basaiti sets the poignant scene of the Lamentation in a sweeping landscape whose careful rendering offered contemporary viewers a variety of visual stimuli for contemplating the Passion of Christ.
