Moretto painted this moving altarpiece just before his death for the oratory of a confraternity in his hometown. Restoration has revealed the striking contrast between the somber faces of the figures and the dawn light playing across the sky and landscape. Members of the group would have meditated on the moments following Christ’s death and thought of the piercing grief of his mother and other followers, but also of the promise of life to come. When it entered the museum, its gravity and nobility reminded one curator of the music of Bach or the poetry of Milton.
