"Dead Christ holded by an angel" print
300 g Invercote G paper. Full image proportional to the size of the sheet (33 x 42 cm).
This print reproduces in detail one of the masterpieces of the Museo del Prado, Dead Christ holded by an angel (Antonello da Messina, 1475-1476). Antonello´s painting is technically virtuoso, combining a meticulous calligraphy of northern origin —visible in the landscape and in Christ´s hair— with a monumental treatment of the anatomy and a concern for volume and perspective that are clearly southern. It includes margins on the sides to facilitate framing.
