Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    Believed to have been in the collection of the de Montmorency family, Castle Morres, Kilkenny
    with Kevin Coates, Dublin, where purchased by the present owner

    The present work is a secondary version of, what the artist called, 'my sole most valuable work...' his 'Pieta' (1863), now in the Schack-Galerie, Munich.

    When it was exhibited at the Munich International Art Exhibition in 1863, Eugène Muntz celebrated it in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts: 'The 'Pieta' 1863 is a Chef-d'œuvre...Christ, a figure ugly rather than beautiful is extended in a cavern; his mother is beside him, overwhelmed with her grief; behind her kneel three young women, sad but resigned. It is all! No accessories, no violent gestures, no ideas, but a sincerity which goes to the hear, and a sadness so natural and so deep that it touches one more than all the research of the pathetic...'
