Oil on Panel
Painted on a small scale, this work is a copy of a section of Raphael's Christ Falling on the Way to Calvary, also known as Lo Spasimo. Mary is the focal point of the image, with Jesus having been cropped out. Only partial sections of the cross and figures other than Mary remain visible.The original has been accurately copied, with the addition of a sticker, painted over Jesus' cloak, just beyond Mary's outstretched arms. The sticker is circular, though folded, partly obscuring the lettering. When examined closely, it is possible to determine that it is a retail sticker with the text reading 'Half Price' in white lettering on a red background.
