Maestro Veneto del 17° Secolo - Santa Maria Maddalena

Maestro Veneto del 17° Secolo - Santa Maria Maddalena
Oil on canvas - Not signed - XVII Secolo d.C.

Antique painting, oil on canvas, 18th century, depicting a suggestive Saint Mary Magdalene.

Saint Mary Magdalene, depicted here with a vase of ointment in her hands, one of her traditional iconographic attributes, is remembered in the Gospels as one of the women of Galilee who followed Jesus and his disciples, who was present at his crucifixion and burial and who went to the tomb on Easter Sunday morning to anoint his body.

The painting has peculiar characteristics that can be traced back to an artist of the Venetian school, highlighting great compositional and stylistic analogies with the works of Sebastiano Mazzoni (1611 - 1678), painter, architect and poet of Florentine origin, who lived from around 1640 in Venice, becoming one of the most prolific artists of seventeenth-century Venetian painting.

Framed with a beautiful Salvator Rosa-style frame, from a fairly recent period.

In more than good overall condition considering its age, very few scattered restorations, of small magnitude and of absolutely no relevance. The original canvas has an old re-lining that does not show any kind of conservative problem and to which bands of canvas were later applied along the four sides to increase its hold.
The stretcher has probably been replaced recently and in conjunction with the application of the canvas bands. Fine craquelure compatible with its age.

Canvas size: 61 x 51 cm. Frame size: 79 x 68.5 cm.

Shipped via insured express courier, packaged with the utmost care.
