Carlo Francesco Nuvolone
MILAN 1609 - 1662
SUSANNA AND THE ELDERS

Catalogue Note

Mr Filippo Maria Ferro points out that the inscription on the verso of this small painting, which refers to Murillo, is intriguing. Several times this reference to Murillo in relation to Carlo Francesco Nuvolone is seen in the context of collecting in the second half of the seventeenth century. The painting of Susanna and the Elders attests to the great care Nuvolone has dedicated to this theme of seduction (see F. M. Ferro, Nuvolone una famiglia di pittori nella Milano del '600, Soncino 2003, pp. 181-182; F. M. Ferro, Carlo Francesco Nuvolone e la "seduzioni" della pittura, in: Nuvolone tra sacro e profane al Sacro Monte sopra Varese, exh. cat., Musei Civici di Varese, 2012-2013, pp. 24-35).

As in other cases, this painting represents a preliminary study worked up in the studio. We are grateful to Mr Filippo Maria Ferro for endorsing the attribution on the basis of photographs and for his assistance in the cataloguing of this lot.
