"The Death Of The Virgin"

Caravaggio - Michelangelo Merisi - Oil

The Death Of The Virgin (1606) is a near contemporary with the Madonna with Saint Anne now at the Galleria Borghese. It was commissioned by Laerzio Alberti, a papal lawyer, for his chapel in the Carmelite church of Santa Maria della Scala in Trastevere, Rome. The depiction of the Death of the Virgin caused a contemporary stir, and was rejected as unfit by the parish. But Peter Paul Rubens, praised it as one of Caravaggio's best works. Today it hangs in the Louvre. The painting recalls the Entombment in the Vatican in scope, sobriety, and the photographic naturalism. The figures are nearly life-sized. Surrounding the Virgin are overcome Mary Magdalen and apostles. Others shuffle in behind them. He expresses the greater grief of the former not by a more emotive face, but by hiding their faces. Caravaggio, master of stark and dark canvases, is not interested in a mannerist exercise that captures a range of emotions. In some ways this is a silent grief, this is no wake for wailers. The sobbing occurs in faceless emotional silence. The holiness of the Virgin is discerned by her thread-like halo. A large red cloth looms in the upper portion of the canvas
a common motif in deposition painting.
