Grablegung Christi

More about this artwork
Rembrandt presents us with a picture of inconsolability and deep sorrow. Following his crucifixion, Christ’s followers lay his body in a sarcophagus in the cave among the rocks, in a scene sparsely lit by torches and lanterns. In the background, Golgotha, the place of execution, can be seen.
