HISTORY: The subject of the death of Christ has been treated several times


by Carpeaux, in the form of copies of the old masters (Rubens


for example) or original works. There is a watercolour of the subject


in the collections of the Musée du Petit Palais in Paris, showing a composition quite similar but inverted from that of the


to our painting.



Let us also note two terracottas kept at the Petit Palais in Paris and at the


Metropolitan in New York as well as a preparatory drawing for these sculptures
