This evocative 19th century oil on canvas is attributed to the renowned French artist Jean-Jacques Henner. The work captures the poignant scene of the Death of Saint Sebastian, showcasing the body of the saint post-martyrdom, having been removed from the tree. In a dramatic play of light and shadow, two mournful figures are depicted in the gloom, engaging in a silent lament. The painting is of notable quality and is well-preserved, suggesting it may have served as a preparatory study for Henner's final work that now resides in the Musée National in France. The canvas is set in a magnificent antique gilt frame, which complements the solemnity and gravitas of the depicted scene.
