This is one of a group of small tempera paintings by Estella Canziani in the Birmingham Collection. They are particularly valuable in providing documentary information on the clothes and associated lifestyle of the local people living in remote villages in Northern Italy. 'The Confraternity dates back to 1595... The procession consists of four brothers of the Confraternity in charge of the Holy Sepulchre, and accompanied by children in white, with wings to represent angels... and other brothers carrying a glass case with the recumbent figure of the Christ. The ceremonies last from five in the afternoon till nine in the evening'. (Estella Canziani, 1913)

Presented by Estella Canziani, 1931.
