Description: This work represents an important turning point in the artistic career of Pajetta. In the late forties and early fifties, he abandoned his Chiarismo and neo-Fauve style in favor of a new, creative, expressionism. The dramatic events of the war, through which Pajetta lived in Tremezzo, on Lake Como, contributed significantly to the maturation of this new painting style. The theme of the Deposition (which the artist would return to later in his career) can be read as the figurative translation of the artist's reflection on the theme of death and human suffering.
