Stunning Antique Religious Oil Painting Mary Magdalena & Cherubs, 18th / 19th century
A beautiful and very well executed religious antique oil on canvas painting depicting Mary Magdalena being adorned by two cherubin / cherubs. Mary Magdelena and the cherubs are set in the forefront of the painting and are set in a naturalistic setting of a field with grass and flowers with trees, mountains and a town in the background.
While the painting has heavy craquelure and areas of loss as well as having been placed on a newer stretcher at some point during its existence, it was and remains a stunning painting. The artist, whose name is signed ineligibly in the lower right-hand corner of the painting did an amazing job of capturing the sereneness of Mary as she gazes down at the cherubs, who in turn are captured looking up at her lovingly. The use of color and vibrancy also make this an amazing piece. This painting is sold without a frame, however, when it is framed the losses at the edges could be hidden from view by having the frame hide these.
Come take a look at this wonderful piece in person at our historic showroom located at 137 Stockton St., Hightstown, NJ 08520!
Dimensions: 23 3/4″ high by 19 5/8″ wide / long.
Condition: Heavy cracquelure to painting including extensive losses to edges and some losses to painting itself. The painting has been placed on an newer stretcher at some point during its existance and it was slightly shrunk from its original size because of this; it is due to the re-strectchering that most of the heavy losses to the paint occured. When held up to the light, small pinpricks of ligth can be seen due to some of the craquelure and paint lifting. See numerous photos as they are part of the condition report.
