'Extreme Unction' was acquired by the Fitzwilliam Museum in 2012 through the HM Government’s acceptance in lieu scheme, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Art Fund, and numerous charities and public donations. It is the most important Old Master painting to enter the museum’s collection for over a century, and makes a notable addition to the permanent collection of seventeenth-century French paintings. This online resource explores the painting in depth.
