15th century limestone Pieta

Pieta in limestone of the fifteenth century.

The theme of the Virgin of Mercy or Pieta, the Virgin supporting the body of Christ after the descent of the cross, was born in Germany. Introduced in France probably in 1390 for the Chartreuse of Champmol by the great French-Flemish image makers, it flourished in the second half of the 15th century and the first third of the 16th century.

Our Virgin is typically French in her resigned appeasement. The numerous and broken folds, very skilfully arranged on the right side of the Virgin in particular, show a Flemish influence circulating through Burgundy. The hands of the Virgin conjoined on the chest are a non-exclusive character, but often found in the center of France, Bourbonnais, Auvergne, Rouergue.

Numerous accidents and visible lacks. Bust reattached with cement and metal studs.
