Creepy Carpaccio


Always discovering new things in the reception of Job! Here's a second painting by Vittore Carpaccio - I was aware of a predecessor, now residing at the Metropolitan Museum, but not this one, in the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin, dated 1505, a weird, chilling scene of the dead Christ before his burial. Job sits near the center of the picture, the musicians often associated with him play atop a hill in the distance.
