The Entombment is an unfinished painting of the placing of the body of Jesus in the garden tomb, attributed to the Italian Renaissance master Michelangelo Buonarroti and dated to around 1500 or 1501. It is in the National Gallery in London, which purchased the work in 1868 from Robert Macpherson, a Scottish photographer resident in Rome who had discovered the painting there.
