A lovely piece of fine antique art, an engraving of the religious scene of Christ healing the mother-in-law of Peter, apostles are gathered around the bed of the sick lady to witness the miracle.
Entitled in Dutch: Christus geneest de moeder van Petrus
Some beautiful work by a famed engraver of the old masters works.
The print is visibly signed Johannes Pieter de Frey (1770–1834) dated 1797, Frey attributes Gabriël Metsu (1629–1667).
Frey originally from the Netherlands became famous for his engravings of the 17th century old masters, this particular engraving is available to view as part of the collection at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
Frey died in Paris leaving some of his prized works in the French Market.
This piece was sold to a collector in France and bought to England as part of a wide collection and most recently made its way to us.
The picture is not framed or glazed it is mounted on a large thin card backing, ready to frame.
A very attractive piece shows minor age related foxing in areas but nothing that detracts.
