The Pietà was painted by José de Ribera in 1633 and is considered one of the most successful treatments of this subject by the artist who represented it in several works. The exhibition sponsored by Caja de Ahorros de Mediterráneo, looks at the iconography of the Pietà in this painting and more specifically examines Ribera’s significant contribution to the representation of this episode from the Passion. With this end in mind, the exhibition brings together a select group of works produced at different times in the artist’s career.
