FREE PICK-UP IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA. ARTIST UNKNOWN (CONTINENTAL, 17TH CENTURY) A SAINT IN AN ARCADE. Oil on canvas, with arched top Sight: 54″ x 39.5″ Gilt wood frame: 59″ x 45″. The piece was painted, c. 1650 1700, and has been professionally restored. Some of the photography shows a glare to the upper right corner. It was photographed in natural sunlight, and is immediately ready for hanging. This piece has a heavy layer of varnish and a heavy amount of craquelure to the surface throughout. In various areas, this craquelure results in spots of pigment loss measuring from pen-tip sized to 1/2 spots. Some of the larger spots with pigment loss have been overpainted. To the middle of the canvas, there are two faint horizontal stretcher bar marks. Above the saints left hand, there are four spots of light colored pigment. The saints left hand has sustained a spot of overpainting measuring 1 x 2. Along the entire bottom of the canvas, there is a 1.5 line of restoration overpainting as well as several other areas of the perimeter. From the back, it appears as if part of the canvas has been relined or pieced together in a 3 ft x 2 ft area. This quote is for the Continental U. International Buyers Please Note.
