Description

Giuseppe Scolari (Italian, active 1592-1607)

Lamentation over the Body of Christ,
late 1500s
Woodcut

Gift of The Print Club of Cleveland 1982.170

Venice was an important center for the production of woodcuts during the
1500s. Titian (1488-1576), the celebrated Venitian painter, exerted
tremendous influence on the graphic arts. His vibrant, monumental woodcut
designs inspired generations of artists, including Giuseppe Scolari, who is
known today only through a handful of woodcuts. The dramatic composition
and the bold linear treatment are characteristic of Scolari's style.
