Up for sale is an exceptional antique oil painting on canvas by 18th century Guido Reni School or Follower. This artwork is in very good condition for the age. The canvas has been attached to the stretcher strip with nails. It has also been relined and under black light shows evidence of professional inpainting all around the outer edge of the canvas with several other minute spots on her face. The most noticeable spot is on her left cheek which I have attached a photograph for convenience. Overall crazing is visible. The original art size is 27" x 21" with the frame measuring 32 ¼" x 26 ¼".
Provenance: The art was purchased in the late 60s from PB 84 (Parke-Bernet on East 84th St. in New York City) by the owners of Seaside Art Gallery.
