Lovely miniature painting on an ivory-like material, taken from Portrait Of A Woman by Sebastiana Piombo, the original in the Uffuzzi Gallery . We do not see a signature on this art, but in comparing it to the original in the gallery, this is a very fine piece of art as to both artistic technique and colors, really a very amazing piece of art. the painting measures 4 & 1/2" by 3 & 3/4"; and the overall size measures 8" by 7 & 1/4". The art is under glass in a gold gilt fine gesso and wood frame with gold velvet inner framing. The painting is in wonderful condition, the gold frame has some wear and a small area on the lower left that is chipped off the front; a little gold paint will make this much less noticeable, and otherwise it is a wonderful old frame. This came from a local estate of a large collection of fine miniatures and original art paintings and statuary.
