Die Grablegung der hl. Katharina von Alexandrien auf dem Berg Sinai

More about this artwork
This altarpiece presumably came from the St. Catherine's Chapel in the Church of the Discalced Mercidarians in Seville (consecrated 1636). As in other similarly structured compositions, the artist has only summarily painted the upper part of the work. The increasing precision reaches its pinnacle with the fabrics in shades of pink and grey in the lower part of the painting. For this work Zurbarán worked after an engraving from Cornelis Cort (1575).
