Framed Painting, Madonna and Child (probably 19th century) Oil on Copper


A half-length image of the Madonna holding the Christ Child. The work is set in a carved wood frame with gilding. No visible signature or date on work. Frame: 9 1/4″ x 11″ Work: 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″. The work appears to be in good condition with some minor losses and inpainting visible in raking light. The textured quality of the dark robes of the Madonna may indicate the use of bithumin in the pigment which would indicate that the work was executed in the late 19th century. The copper support appears to be hand hammered. Some losses to the gilding of the frame.
