  • Title: Lamentation over the dead Christ - Late 15th. Century
  • Date/Period: Late 15th. century
  • Materials: Oil on copper panel
  • Dimensions: 28,5 x 19 cm; 50 x 41 x 3 cm with frame
  • Additional Information: Nicely painted flemish school oil painting on copper panel, unknown master, follower of Rogier van der Weyden. Based on the color usage, composition and style of the painting, it belongs to a group of North Renaissance-style paintings. It's archetypical painting is Rogier van der Weyden's Pietá. Based on the method of working on the copper plate, the paint and the pigment usage and the technique of painting, it was made at the end of the 15th century, or perhaps at the beginning of the 16th century. In the upper left corner of the painting, there is an old repair that was not repainted even after cleaning. According to the restorer's opinion, some small details (background) had probably been repainted over time, but those repairs are more than 300 years old because they have picked up the cracking net of the original painting. During cleaning, the old paint layer was not repaired, signs of natural aging were not removed. The copper is flattened by hands with a hammer. This technique was used before the 16th century. The thickness of the copper panel varies between 0,5 - 1 mm because of the handwork. The weight of the plate is 390 grams. The paint layer is nicely cracked due to the age of the painting, but there are no bigger injuries on it. The painting has been cleaned by a restorer expert (paintings on copper plates do not need conservation, thanks to the old Dutch technique). The frame is not the original frame of the painting. The inner part of the built Flemish black and gold frame is from the 18th century, its outer part was made much later. (See pictures). The frame has been restored, but age-related signs of aging have not been eliminated. The painting origins from the Netherlands, and then got to a private collection in Germany in the 1960's. I guarantee a lifetime warranty on the originality!
