This is an Antique Italian Painting estimated to be from the 1830s. I was able to find out a bit of the more recent history of the painting. It hung above the entry in a mansion of the honorary consul to Lebanon in the 1970s. The painting was in rough condition at that time. It had nail holes and a large circular scratch across the top – possibly it was built into some type of alter or church display at one time. It was very dirty – the blue sky, clouds, and the rays around the figures were not visible. It was in a poorly made frame from the 1970s. We had the painting professionally restored approximately 10 years ago in Seattle WA. The current frame is new but it is correct for the period. This is quite a large painting. The length including the frame is approximately 59 inches and the width is 33. The condition is as shown. I love the fact that the outlines of the figure can be seen on the back of the old canvas. The painting is unsigned. It is my understanding that quite often the artists did not sign religious paintings as they considered the work to be by “the hand of God” rather than of their own talents. I do not know what artist may have painted this piece. A modern hand written inscription is on the back. Fortunately it does not seem to have affected the canvas. I did try to blot this out a couple years ago, and strangely the next morning my markings had disappeared once again showing the inscription. I guess that means it is meant to stay so I made no further attempts to cover or remove it. Few other things to try to avoid misunderstandings so here goes. Although I strive for accuracy in my listings I use a good old fashion ruler for measuring – not some scientific. Method – so all measurements are approximate.
