Pair of Regency Giltwood Wall Sconces, ca 1820
Oil on Board Depicting Half Portrait of a Monk
A 19th Century oil on board depicting a monk holding a cross and rosary.
The painting resembles the image of Padré Pio who was canonised in the 20th Century. However, this painting pre-dates this. There is some writing verso. See pictures.
Housed in the original 19th Century gilt wood frame, the painting is finely painted and in good condition.
