I knew this was special when I saw it. Does it have the same effect on you. Let me know what you think of this incredible pencil sketch from 1869! This is one of my prized posessions!! Also in it's original rosewood frame.

    The artist's name is LAZERGES, Jean Raymond Hippolyte. (1817 - 1887).
    Google images "LAZERGES, Jean Raymond Hippolyte Christ" and you will see some other images of Christ in well known museums, including the Louvre.
    If it's an original you should seek advice.

    An intriguing item!

    Hi.
    A valuation re insurance. A top auction house. There are costs involved.
    The condition of the mounts and frame should be checked. http://www.drloriv.com/advice/framing1.htm

    I'm sure others will add to my thoughts.

    Hello vetraio50
    Do you happen to know who in represented in the faint outline of the facial profile under the right shoulder of Jesus??
    Thanks

    I can see what you mean.
    The scene is the "descent of the body" from the Cross, I'd say.
    That's the thirteenth station.
    It may be a detail from a larger work.
    The effect comes from an interpretation of the fold of the cloth.
    To me it is a distraction from the major focus on the face of the dead Christ.

    Thank you for the information vetraio50!!

    Hello vetraio50:
    I have inspected this outline underneath the shoulder of Jesus and I have come to the conclusion in my mind that it is someone who is helping to retrieve Jesus from the cross. I say this because the eye lines are exagerated to the point that it could not be an illusion. If you will, inspect it further and tell me if this might be a possibility.
    Thanks:
    John

    Hi John.
    If so, then the candidates at the Apokathelosis are three women said to be at the scene:
    Mary, his mother
    Mary Magdalene
    St Veronica (or Berenice ) : "the bearer of victory" - Shroud of Turin?
    Males would have been Joseph of Arimathea, Nicodemus and St John the Evangelist. (John 19:38-42). (Mary Salome being mentioned in Mark 15:40), and also that the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene saw the burial (Mark 15:47).

    Hi again John!
    How is your French?
    Google the following expression.
    Simple copy and paste.
    Chemin de croix, Lazerges
    This is the French for Stations of the Cross.
    Switch to images and then you'll see some other drawings from the series.
    Series? Yes the Stations of the Cross in a book form.
    http://www.librairietequi.com/A-50048-chemin-de-croix-lazerges.aspx

    I think you can buy it for four euros or less.
    Résumé
    Magnifiques sanguines pour illustrer chaque station passée avec le Christ, à ses côtés, en union avec ses souffrances et dans un même acte d’amour.

    I've not found yours yet but there's one there from Station 12 etc.
    http://fr.topic-topos.com/douzieme-station-du-chemin-de-croix-meigneux
    There's station 10 at another.

    I reckon yours will be 13 or "treize"


  10. vetraio50 vetraio50, 3 years ago
    I found it! It is number 13.

    On this page they have a series of the drawings from the Chemin de Croix.
    They are held by Sister of Saint Anne at their "Centre historique des Soeurs de Sainte-Anne" in Montreal, Canada.

    Hi:
    I love this. Have you found any more information about this drawing. I just came across three items that look similar. I am going to try and post the photo soon. I am interested in anything you know about them. Thanks
  12. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Hi lovedtreasures. If it's from the same series there are fourteen stations.
    This was number 13.

    Hi again loved treasures! The site above needs to be copied in full.
    That is all three lines.
    Cut the whole link and then put in into your browser.
    "Control C" then "Control V" (M'soft)
    or "commandC" then "command V" (Mac)

    It's in the Artefacts Canada Humanities Database
    Google this;
    Jésus tombe pour la troisième fois Name of Object: station de chemin de croix Artist/Maker: Lazerges, J.R.H.

    It should come up at the top of a list of three!

    I just saw a suggestion about removing a wood Backing to protect damage to a picture. Should I remove the wood backing on this pensil drawing to protect it??
  16. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    Should only be done professionally.
  17. musikchoo musikchoo, 2 years ago
    Thank You vetraio50. It is very special to me and I appreciate the advice. Thank you again vetraio50
  18. vetraio50 vetraio50, 2 years ago
    You're welcome. I learnt a lot from this posting, so thanks to to you as well!

    Thanks musikchoo, very evocative piece. I have, just a few months ago, completed a commission of painting Frescoes on the walls and ceiling in a small private English Chapel. I only WISH I had seen this BEFORE I did the preliminary sketches, for sure! Thanks again.
  20. musikchoo musikchoo, 2 years ago
    Thank You Hems303, for the kind words about a Drawing that is very special to me. If this Drawing, or I, can help your endeavor in any way, just let me know. Again, Thank You.
  21. Hems303 Hems303, 2 years ago
    Many thanks for that musikchoo! That particular commission took 18 months and is now fully completed. Many thanks. This "Head of Christ" is a well handled rendering and I think mine would have benefited just by me contemplating this before committing pencil to paper/brush to wall. :)
  22. Hems303 Hems303, 2 years ago
    For anyone interested: Here's a link to the "Christ/Chapel" commission talked about above:
