Sheet has two tape pieces top edge verso affixed to mat, along with additional old (mostly paper) tape remnants along parts of edges verso.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: MANNER OF GIOVANNI DI PAOLO (italian active circa 1420-1482)/span A TRIPTYCH: THE CENTRAL PANEL, VIRGIN AND CHILD WITH GOD THE FATHER ABOVE, CENTERED BY THE VIRGIN ANNUNCIATE; THE LEFT PANEL, SAINT PETER; THE RIGHT PANEL, SAINT PAUL Tempera on panel with gold ground 25 1/4 x 14 in. (64.1 x 35.6cm) (center panel) 27 7/8 x 8 1/8 in. (70.8 x 20.6cm) (left panel) 27 7/8 x 7 5/8 in. (70.8 x 19.4cm) (right panel) 27 7/8 x 32 13/16 in. (70.8 x 83.3cm) (overall, including space created between panels with later hardware) provenance: /spanPrivate Collection, Pennsylvania.

Condition Report: All three panels have some craquelure – with associated surface instabilities - along with mechanical damage, including abrasions and scratches. Each panel also has missing chips, some large, as seen in the catalogue photo. Under u.v. light, much of the ground in each panel appears somewhat dark. We believe this hue is a result of the pigment used, and not restoration. Many of the areas throughout the triptych that have missing chips of paint appear dark in those chip areas under u.v. light. We believe that these chips are largely not filled in, although they appear dark under u.v. light. Most of the missing chips of paint are in the top portion of the middle panel. Center panel: some of the areas with craquelure and surface instabilities/missing paint chips have associated restoration at right part of throne arm and top of throne at right area. There is also restoration at upper left beneath the image of God and some retouch to areas of the Virgin. The center panel is backed with a thicker wood panel that is comprised of joined sections. Side panels: some scattered retouch and paint losses. The outer frame also has missing paint chips, losses, mechanical damage – various surface imperfections.

(96.5 x 73cm) provenance: /spanPrivate Collection. Venduehuis der Notarissen, The Hague, November 10, 1966. Private Collection, Pennsylvania. note:/span We would like to thank Fred Meijer and the Rijksbureau voor Kunsthistorische Documentatie for their identification of this work. This painting is number 149631 in their online database.

Condition Report: Fair overall condition with two vertical cracks in panel roughly centering figure's head, some small losses of paint at lower right corner and some restoration. The painting has old greenish varnish, so some areas are difficult to read under u.v. light, as some of restoration reads as a muted purple under u.v. and is therefore possibly beneath the varnish. There is retouch in the form of thin, vertical lines - most small - to figure's face, parts of collar and parts of left hand. There appears to be some minor restoration to parts of background and likely restoration to parts of dress (hard to read with exactitude under u.v.) and a slightly purplish area at left hand (likely restoration).

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: ATTRIBUTED TO GASPAR VAN WITTEL (flemish c.1653-1736)/span THE COLOSSEUM AND THE ARCH OF CONSTANTINE Signed and located 'Gasparo Van Witel Roma' bottom center on column, oil on canvas 22 3/16 x 43 1/8 in. (56.4 x 109.5cm) Set within a later trumeau. provenance: /spanPrivate Collection, New York, New York. By descent in the family. Private Collection, New York, New York. note:/span Also known as Vanvittelli, Gaspar van Wittel was the preeminent painter of 18th century Italian Veduta scenes. Briganti publishes numerous versions of this composition (G. Briganti, Gaspar Van Wittel, Milan, 1996. pp 151-155, numbers 54-60), which depicts the Colosseum from the gardens of the Friars of Santa Francesca Romana. Another version sold 'Important Old Master Pictures' Christie's, London. December 16, 1998, lot 69.

Condition Report: This painting is executed in oil on canvas and is mounted in a red painted frame with some gilt touches and 3 mirrors below. The varnish is shiny and transparent but quite yellowed. Flyspecks and accretions are visible throughout, but are most noticeable in the sky. Stretcher creases and mechanical crackle are present as is expected in a painting of this age. The painting is largely planar though there are with slight vertical ridges that appear to come from the support fabric. Examination in UV light shows minor retouching and some heavy varnish drips. The most visible of these is in the lower left, just to the left of left-most foreground figures. An round area of retouching approximately an inch across, is seen in the next to the top tier of the Coliseum, located approx 13" vertically by 16 1/4" horizontally from lower left corner of painting. Some variation in fluorescence in the sky may indicate early retouching but also corresponds to variations in varnish gloss and may simply be reflective of that difference in varnish density. The varnish flouresces a greenish-white and appears to be a natural resin. The painting is glue lined and mounted on a modern (probably 3rd quarter of the 20th century) mitre-joined stretcher. The painting is in good condition for its age but would benefit from cleaning by a qualified conservation professional Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports.

Condition Report: In poor overall condition, the relined canvas with areas of restoration throughout, including to parts of figures, foreground and background. The painting may likely be comprised of two joined canvases, with a visible horizontal 'ridge' across the canvas approx. 23 inches above the bottom edge. A few of the areas that appear to be in unrestored original condition include most of the standing man with staff at far right, most of the face of the main figure receiving the leaning man and much of the torso of the leaning man. There appear to be two campaigns of restoration, with some of the older restoration having a paler fluorescence under u.v. light, and some of the newer restoration (including, but not limited to) such as above the woman's head at farthest upper left having a dark fluorescence under u.v. light.

Description: NORTHERN ITALIAN SCHOOL (17th-18th century)/span DANAE Oil on canvas 33 1/4 x 47 1/4 in. (84.5 x 120cm) provenance: /spanAn Estate, Florida.

Condition Report: In overall fair to poor condition, the relined canvas being somewhat difficult to accurately read under u.v. light due largely to varnish inconsistencies but with definite areas of restoration. There are two areas of the canvas that are outwardly bowed: one approx. 5 to 6 1/2 inches in width at bottom of canvas; one approx. 10 inches long - a thin puckered area lifting from the lining - located at reclining woman and with slight associated paint loss (about 1 inch worth). Parts of the outer left/lower right edges of canvas have paint losses. At upper right corner above, not touching, the man's left arm is an approx. 9 1/2 inch surface crack and at upper left corner in background there is an approx. 18 inch long surface crack. These cracks are roughly semi-arch form and appear to indicate that canvas once had an arch form frame and/or liner. There is restoration and paint loss at large bowed area at bottom of canvas, additional areas of restoration to parts of figures and parts of background.

Condition Report: In generally fair overall condition, particularly in consideration of the age and size of the canvas, which is relined and does have some restoration and some unevenness. Throughout much of painting there are minute losses, some areas of surface imperfections/disruptions, craqueulure and some areas with somewhat dark (though not dark purple under u.v. light) spots that appear to be dirt/surface accretions. The lower left quadrant of canvas has a restored tear at crouching lower left figure, approx. 3 inches long one way, 2 inches long one way, 2 inches long one way. There is some restoration to neck and chin of woman with floral garland and some apparent restoration to figure's forehead at left of that woman. At center of canvas there is a large outward bulging.

In the upper right quadrant of canvas there is a smaller canvas bulge. In the lower right quadrant of canvas there is likely minor restoration to part of child and small area of restoration at lower center right edge.
