Description:

Italian School, 16th Century Style

Allegorical Scene
Unsigned, inscribed "Gagliardi Peintre du Palais Giusstiniani Dernier Etage" on the
backing.
Oil on canvas, 27 x 31 1/4 in. (68.5 x 79.3 cm), framed.
Condition: Lined (with solid support between the two canvases), retouched, craquelure.
Estimate $3,000-5,000

Please note that, while we believe this work is probably 19th century or earlier, we cannot guarantee the age of this painting.

The work is lined with a solid support between the two canvases and with wax adhesive. Craquelure throughout appears stable. Retouch is several large and small scattered areas. There is some mild surface grime in addition to scattered flecks of while pigment so that this work might benefit from a gentle cleaning.
