"Holy Family With Saint Anne. Beginning Of The 17cent. Oil On Copper."Painting of the Holy Family with Santa Anna.
Technique: Oil on copper.
Beginning of the 17th century.
The scene takes place in a house from the Renaissance period.
Birth attributes: A richly carved cradle with an archaeological-style mask, popular in the 16th century.
The fruit basket is a tribute to the Madonna and the child. The painting comes from the Flemish school. But she is greatly affected by the influence of Italian painting of the Mannerist period. At the end of the 16th century, many Flemish painters came to Italy, and in addition, prints began to circulate in the northern countries. These engravings, starting with those of Raphael and his pupils, gave stylistic imputations to Flemish painters (see for example "Madonna della Gatta" by Giulio Romano). And this little copper is certainly a curious testimony.
The painting has been recently restored.
It has a beautiful golden and engraved frame from the 20th century.
