Sebastiano del Piombo (Sebastiano Luciani). 1485-1547

The Lamentation

Italy, 1516

Most of his life Sebastiano Luciani, known as del Piombo, spent in Rome, and it was here, rather than in his native Venice, that his particular artistic style developed, combining the Venetian love of colour with the plasticity of form and expressive gestures of the Tuscano-Roman school. The Lamentation is an excellent example of his work, with its energetic diagonal composition, powerful figures, its monumentality and restrained drama, which seem to echo the work of Michelangelo, who exercised a strong influence on the artist. The dramatic mood is reinforced by the twilight landscape with the fading colours of the sunset.
