Baroque Painting Mater Dolorosa Virgin Mary
German Baroque painting depicting Mater Dolorosa with the sword. It is a dark and impressive painting which shows all the suffering of the Virgin. The tear drops on her cheek are so touching.
The painting is unsigned.
The condition is good. There are some tiny painting loss, hard noticeable and beautiful age crazing. The surface shows some dark spots which could come from an old varnish. I do not feel them annoying, but I recommend a professional restore, if you want to remove them.
The canvas seems to be lined on the original stretcher.
The painting is framed. The frame is original (rare!). Simple dark baited wooden frame with a small former golden baguette now blackened due age and probably candle fume in the monastery. Some age traces present.
The painting measures 19.6 x 23.6 inches (without frame), 23.6 x 27.2 (with frame).
The painting comes from a monastery in my area; German provenance and dated around 1750. I bought it together with a beautiful depiction of Jesus. This painting is also listed in my shop.
