Italian (Umbrian) Painter (ca. 1500). The Theological Virtues: Faith, Charity, Hope. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Purchase, Bequest of Mary Cushing Fosburgh and Gift of Rodman Wanamaker, by exchange, 1982 (1982.177.1–3)
The Lamentation, ca. 1480, Castile, Spain. The highly emotional, wrenching expressions on the faces of the standing figures in this shrine are heavily influenced by the work of the South Netherlandish painter Rogier van der Weyden (ca. 1399–1464). Indeed, it is possible the Spanish workshop that created this work included at least one Netherlandish artist. The shrine was originally the center section of an altarpiece from the ruined Benedictine monastery of Sopetrán, northeast of Madrid.
