Mourning of Christ. Fresco, Cappella dell'Arena, Padua 1305

Name: Mourning of Christ. Fresco, Cappella dell'Arena, Padua 1305
Artist: Giotto
Location: Cappella dell'Arena, Padua
Year: 1305

This sad and poignant fresco shows the Virgin embracing her Son for the last time. Giotto has arranged the figures and squeezed them together in a way that is not real at all. The event appears to be carefully staged. The perspectives are distorted and flattened. This was quite a new approach to early Christian art where each figure had to be shown in completeness.
