Philadelphia, PA, USALive Auction
THE ASCENSION OF THE VIRGIN
Oil on canvas
25 1/4 x 38 3/4 in. (64.1 x 98.4cm)
Private Collection, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
the relined canvas is not quite as dark in tone or as richly saturated in actuality (in our opinion) as it appears in the auction catalogue. The painting is somewhat difficult to accurately 'read' under u.v. light due to residual varnish and pigments used. It has a relatively high gloss finish; apparently in generally good overall condition - it is possible there is some restoration under the varnish not immediately apparent
