  • Reference : 1439
  • Availability : Available Now
  • Dimensions : 7 1/4" x 4 1/2" excluding frame
  • Price : £2950


A fine late 16th Century North European School "Old Master" miniature on hammered copper panel approx 7 1/4" x 4 1/2" excluding frame in the manner of Adam Elsheimer, Circa. 1580. Elsheimer himself was an artist who produced works like this on copper panels and the style is suggestive of an artist who like him, originated in Northern Europe but spent time in Rome.  

Philip Mould of BBC1's Antiques Roadshow has very kindly reviewed the images of this painting for us and we have documentary evidence of this which we can provide to the buyer. We are indebted to Philip for his advice regarding this painting.

The painting denotes the Virgin Adoring the Sleeping Christ Child. Other Old Masters have also have painted similar images including Sandro Botticelli and Filippo Lippi.

The painting bears no signature.

Condition - paint losses as per images (remaining paint is stable) and presented in an early 19th Century gesso frame (again with losses).
