Renaissance bronze plaquette of the Lamentation from the school of Raphael

Attributed to Cesarino da Perugia
Rome, Italy; ca. 1522-24
Bronze (plaquette); black marble (mount)

Approximate size: 10.5 x 7.3 cm (plaquette)

The present plaquette, depicting a scene of the Lamentation, has long been associated with a Tuscan-Roman origin and more recently has been identified as the work of Cesarino da Perugia, a goldsmith active in Rome and friend of Raphael. The scene’s composition, in fact, derives from Raphael’s sketches for his panel painting of the Deposition, a central altarpiece made for the Perugian-based Baglioni family chapel in San Francesco al Prato, and is now located in the Galleria Borghese.

The plaquette may have been realized for insertion into devotional paxes and was possibly commissioned by the Cardinal Andrea della Valle in association with his ascension to the rank of Cardinal in 1517, his receipt of the seat of Santa Maria Maggiore in 1520, or in response to the papal conclaves of 1521 and 1523, the latter of which he was nominated as a papal candidate. Several high-quality casts of the relief are found set in pax frames referencing the Cardinal. A very fine silver example is set in a distinguished pax frame preserved at the Castello Sforzesco.

Numerous independent casts of the relief are known and attest to its popularity during the 16th century and thereafter. A later circular variant of the relief was set into a series of silver boxes produced during the 19th century, for example. The present example is an old cast, possibly of late 16th century origin.

Mounted to a honed black marble base. This display-piece can be hung on a wall or displayed on a shelf or desktop. It derives from a Netherlandish private collection.
