Object description :

"Flemish School XVIII -110 X 94 - Portrait Saint Agnes"
Imposing late 17th century portrait representing a seated young woman guarding sheep, a book in her hand, a cross around her neck against a backdrop of a lake landscape-

In this work, a young woman is represented as Saint Agnes, with a lamb (main iconographic attribute of the saint, symbol of her purity) and a stick in place of the palm of martyrdom.

Beautiful presence of the subject in amber hues, shimmering velvets, skin tones –

Seduced me in this singular piece, the symbolic destitution of the subject, the chromatic fluidity, the tickling of the fabrics –

In short, the opposite of the portrait of pageantry -

A sort of deliberate Otium, an apparent idleness not devoid of meaning -

Very Good Condition, presented in a splendid spandrel frame -
