About the Work

Originally attributed to the elder Tintoretto, today the drawing is considered a work by Jacopo’s son Domenico. It is likely to have served as a preliminary study for a painted work depicting the Dead Christ, now in Basel. The surface of the body has been skilfully modelled with effective use of shading. These elements enter into suspenseful interplay with the long, sweeping lines that form the contours.
