More About Pietà by William Adolphe Bouguereau
Pietà is not just a painting but a depiction of elevated mourning.
The painting is unique in its approach and tries to paint a very famous imagery of religious history.
A weeping Mother Mary cloaked in a robe of black is mourning the death of her son, Jesus, holding him close to her chest.
The dead body of Jesus limply hangs in her arms while eight weeping angels surround them.
Although Pietà is considered an honor to Jesus for the sacrifices he made, there is more to the painting.
Just a year before this painting, Bouguereau experienced separation from his teenage son due to a sudden illness.
Contemporary art researchers believe that the painting was a result of the artist’s grief.
Bouguereau paid close attention to detail through his use of colors: the rusty, drying blood on the white cloth in the foreground, the reddened eyes of the tearful Virgin Mary, and the green tones of Christ’s extremities in decay.
Each element and detail of the painting heightens the intensity of emotions and makes this painting an exceptional piece of work.
