(Pupil of Bervic; Parma, 1788-1858.) It. Known by the name of "Le Spasimo di Sicilia." P.B.L. F. "The procession which conducts the Saviour to Mount Calvary has just reached a turn in the road. He sinks under the weight of the Cross: an executioner, who stands at the edge of the picture, a figure of athletic form, endeavors to pull him up by the rope which is passed around his body. Simon of Cyrene, who met the procession, a powerful figure, turns angrily toward the executioner, and stoops to free Christ from his burden. The Madonna, her hands extended in despair toward her son, sinks on her knees, supported by John and Mary Magdalen. Amidst this combination of varied forms, the figure of Christ is kept distinct with consummate art, so that, though placed in a position so unfavorable, it displays a peculiar nobleness." [Pp. 42-43.]
