The church of Saint Grégoire de Ribeauvillé ordered an altarpiece as a continuation to the twelve apostles decorating the nave since 2007. The chapel, dedicated to Mary, has the Pietàas a central piece. As a representation of this theme, the life of Mary is marked by submissions to projects that surpass her, an incapacity to take control of her life and finally the pain of seeing her son pull away from her, reject her and die humiliated. The composition of this altarpiece has been studied to offer shocking framing on the stripped body of the Christ from the entrance of the church.
