Bazzi Giovanni Antonio called Sodoma

(Vercelli 1477 - Siena 1549)

The painting was already in the collection in the middle of the seventeenth century, recorded as a work by Leonardo da Vinci or Sodoma. The latter was then definitively accepted as the author. The Pietà belongs to the late output of the artist. The marked chiaroscuro of the figures and the dark landscape in the background convey a strong sense of melancholy.
