An extremely rare and fine large size 19th Century Mexican retablo of El Cristo Entierro translated The Entombment of Christ in Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Late 19th Century Original Retablo Oil Painting on Heavy Guage Tin created in Mexico.
Retablo dimensions are approx. 18 inches vertical x 15 inches horizontal.
Condition: in excellent, clean, original condition with some minor paint loss acquired over more than a century of use and devotional prayer.
Note from Brian: I acquired this retablo in the year 2008 from venerable dealer and friend James Eddy. At the time I was building this collection, I had asked James to find for me something impressive. James responded days later that he had laid hands on "the Mona Lisa of Retablos", and I purchased this magnificent piece immediately. I have never found another example even close to the fineness and the unusual size of this piece. It has hung in my living area where I can appreciate it's stunning beauty every day.
