Salvator Mundi

Domenico Fetti Italian

Not on view

In his use of textured brushstrokes and illusionistic devices, in this painting Fetti pays a sort of homage to the great sixteenth-century painter Correggio. Note how Christ’s gaze is directed down at the viewer and how playfully the putti’s heads peek out from Christ’s robe or support his extended foot. Following a fight with a fellow painter, Fetti moved from Mantua to Venice, where he executed this painting for Count Francesco Gambara of Brescia.
