Le Christ mort couché sur son linceul – Philippe de CHAMPAIGNE

Le Christ mort couché sur son linceul - Philippe de CHAMPAIGNE

I don’t know of any other painter who has painted the Christ lying on his shroud all alone (in his tomb, perhaps). The dimensions of this painting make it look as if it’s a cross-sectional view of a coffin /a shallow space.

Philippe de Champaigne painted this in 1654.
