Antique panel with gold background
“Vergine con bambino”
Dimensions 80 x 43 cm / Thickness 3 cm
This extraordinary work is a walnut panel with tempera painting on golden background. It is a rather complex artist's proof, both for the historical-artistic conception and for the religious symbolisms. It seduces the beholder's eye at once for its archaic ambiance, the masterful representation, the miniature-like, delicate figures details, and for the compositional harmony of the scene. A true art book "open on the past", which miraculously crossed the centuries and history, thought, composed and painted "on wood" by an anonymous master, whose complex cultural formation appears here not only pictorial, but also historical, philosophical and religious.
This valuable painting with golden background, depicting the Virgin with Baby Jesus, was part of a private Roman collection.
