The Museum recently received on long-term loan a sixteenth-century painting by the Venetian/Veronese artist Paolo Caliari (1528-1588) titled The Dead Christ with Joseph of Arimathea (circa 1585). Considered one of his masterpieces, the work depicts the body of Christ being supported by an angel and a man, probably Joseph of Arimathea. Caliari is considered one of the greatest colorists in the history of painting. This painting comes from the latter period of his life and shows his move toward a more deeply felt and intimate form of spirituality.
