Antique Italian St Francis Painting On Copper Plate, 1600's
A majestic and extremely rare antique Italian St Francis of Assisi painting on a copper plate, 17th century.
Three ancient miniature paintings on copper plates were discovered recently in the city of Arezzo in Italy [as shown on the last image of this listing]. One of them is this remarkable depiction of St Francis of Assisi created with wonderful talent and artistry. Saint Francis is one of the most venerated religious figures in Christianity and in this portrait he is depicted holding a skull. The plate measures about 10 x 8.3 cm or approximately 4 x 3.2 inches and it is in lovely antique condition considering its age with some signs of ageing that in my opinion only brings forward its true captivating beauty and splendour today. It is exactly as I discovered it. For the full condition please refer to the images!
