The last painting by the Italian master, from the period 1599–1600, evokes Michelangelo’s Pieta due to its pyramidal composition of the figures. Jesus’ dead body is depicted in graphic detail and the bluish hands are truly horrifying. Mary has a sad face and the gesture of her hands signifies fragility and helplessness.
