  • Lamentation with Sorrowing Angels, 17th century
    Workshop of Mattheus van Beveren (Flemish, ca. 1630–1690)
    Flemish
    Boxwood; Overall (with base) 18 x 12 1/2 x 6 1/2 in. (45.7 x 31.8 x 16.5 cm)
    Gift of Loretta Hines Howard, 1964 (64.164.242)

    Van Beveren also worked in ivory (see Cupid on a Lion, 1980.220) and carved larger wood and marble compositions for wealthy religious orders in Antwerp. The monumentality of this Lamentation derives from the sculptor's full-scale version of 1668, made for the altar of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows in Dendermonde (now Belgium). A cutout on the back of the base indicates that a cross once stood behind the group.
