Andrea Verocchio
Entombment of Christ. Second half of the 15 century

29×43 cm
Берлин Инв.№117

This small terracotta relief with the scene of The Lamentation of Christ is one of the most significant works of the former Berlin collection. The figures of Christ, a kneeling man (Nicodemus or Joseph of Arimathea), Virgin Mary, Maria Magdalena and another woman on the left are extant entirely. The upper part of the relief and its right corner had already been lost when the relief was first documented in the middle of the 19th century.
