Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione (1609 - 1664) - Raising of Lazarus
Aguafuerte - Firmado - 1645-1655

This print is the right-hand half of Castiglione's well-known print depicting the Raising of Lazarus.

Jesus, with his right arm raised, is bringing Lazarus (in the missing left-hand portion) to life, with a group of figures watching.

Despite the missing section, this is a dramatic design, and typical of Castiglione's etching skills and distinctive technique; particularly his use of light and shade.

Inscription: 'GB CASTILIONE GENOVESE _ P'
