Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: VENETIAN SCHOOLlate 16th century, THE HOLY FAMILY WITH THE INFANT SAINT JOHN, Formerly attributed to Moretto da Brescia, this painting is the work of a Venetian master from about 1560-80. The model for the cool colours, glowing out of the dark, may have been Tintoretto, the type of figures and the mountainous landscape in the background are also reminiscent of him. At the same time, the works of Veronese, the other great Venetian painter of the time, would have been familiar to our anonymous painter. 80.5 x 82.5 cm, Oil on canvas (relined)

Notes: VAT: Margin Scheme

Provenance: Private property, South Germany.

Medium: Oil on canvas (relined)
