Condition Report

Canvas is lined. Painting presents a striking image, though some details mostly in the background have sunken. Some scattered spots of retouches have discolored, like in the red robe of the Madonna's proper left arm. Inspection under UV reveals scattered, finely painted spots of retouches throughout, like in the figures. A line of inpainting that fluoresces under UV and is also visible to the naked eye is at right along the edge. Painting can hang as is. Offered framed.

Catalogue Note

The son of Domenico Piola, Anton Maria trained in the large family workshop known as Casa Piola alongside his brothers. Sanguineti (see Literature) situates the present lot in a group of intimate devotional compositions with similar themes, including the Allegory of charity in the Pinacoteca Brera, Milan, and dates it to the 1690s.
