A giltwood and polychrome-decorated carved pine panel.

Early 18th Century, originating from Venice.  Entitled "The Doge of Venice".

The panel depicts The Doge of Venice, wearing corno ducale and camauro, kneeling before a female figure, either Faith, or the female personification of Venice, the Lion of St Mark, carved with wings, halo and open book beneath his left paw, by her side, all within a border of tasselled swags.
Provenance: from the Collection of Graham and Susan James and the sale of the contents of Luxford farm, crowborough, sussex. 13th May 2015.  Prior to that, Mr and Mrs james Purchased the panel from M & D Seligmann Antiques, Kensington Church Street, London, 21st February 1986.
This panel should be compared to Titian's The Doge Grimani adoring Faith, completed 1576, and the sculptural portrait of the Doge Francesco Foscari kneeling before the Lion of St. Mark which adorns the cornice of the Porta della Carta of the Doge's Palace.

Condition - some surface wear but all in all good.
