More About this Item


Description: Charcoal Thieves signed and inscribed 'Charcoal Thieves-by/R. Spencer Stanhope/-Florence-' (on the artist's label attached to the backboard) pencil and bodycolour with gum arabic 34 x 24 in. (86.4 x 61 cm.) NOTES Like lots 5 and 8, the subject must have been suggested by some scene that Stanhope had witnessed in the Italian countryside. The landscape looks very Tuscan, perhaps being located between Florence and Siena, and it should not be impossible to identify the acquaduct on the left.
