“Non mi aspetto giustizia dal mondo che ha crocifisso l'amore.”
Painted sculpture group in sandstone
Friuli (Carnia) late 14th – early 15th century
h. cm 57
This intense and intriguing sculpture denotes, in the crude and dramatic characterisation of the figures, the expressionistic taste brought at that time to Italy by popular German devotional sculpture which perfectly defines 15th century Carnian art.
A powerful and original artistic personality emerges from this work, denoting excellent skill in stone carving which is well expressed in the drama of the scene.
