Description

The sculpture was part, with the Madonna, Magdalena, San Giovanni and Giuseppe d’Arimatea, of a Lamentation dismembered and dispersed among various private collections. Only the grieving figure of Nicodemus, purchased by the Municipality of Milan in 1994, belongs to a public collection. Intended to convey to the spectators the pain of Christ's death, the figures of the mourners are very expressive. In this once polychrome work, the sculptor reveals his skill in taking care of every detail. The body is subjected to a dramatic torsion of the bust, while the face, in which very realistic veins emerge, presents the half-open mouth in an expression of great suffering and bewilderment.
