FEEL SOME PITY: Pietà means pity and is a general artistic term for the scene of the Virgin Mary supporting the body of Jesus after the crucifixion. The form first began in Germany and there are pietas by other artists and even several by Michelangelo. But there is only one The Pietà. Find out more here from the series titled Spencer’s Painting of the Week and see the statue in its home at St. Peter’s courtesy of a virtual tour.
