Trautmann, Johann Georg
The Three Marys at the Sepulchre The Three Marys at the Sepulchre
1750 1750

Trautmann drew inspiration from numerous artists, and was particularly influenced by Rembrandt (1606–1669) and his circle. Here, the light emanating from the two angels highlights the faces and the expressive postures of two of the Marys, calling attention to their wonder. The beret of the Mary standing on the far right and the dresses of the other Marys were clearly inspired by Rembrandt, likely by way of a print. The finely painted still life of armour in the foreground evokes the still lifes of the Dutch fijnschilders, such as Gerard Dou (1613–1675), who continued to enjoy remarkable international esteem in the second half of the 18th century.
