The Lamentation

This small, intricately-worked drawing is preparatory of one of the nine engravings in Franco's Life and Passion of Christ series. The lines of the composition have been incised with a stylus to transfer the design directly to the printing plate, and the resulting print is correspondingly in reverse.

Pen and brown ink (1545-1550)

by Battista Franco (Italian, 1510?-1561)
