SAINT PETER


tempera on poplar panel

32 by 10 in.; 81.3 by 25.4 cm.

The panel is convex and is stabilized by its shaped frame. The colorful image reads well with details in the face and hair retained. The gold ground has been lost at the top and bottom of the image but is retained around the figure's head and proper right arm with a few punched details still visible. Under UV inspection, small dots of retouching are visible throughout the figure's clothes and on his forehead, and a larger spot at the bottom of his blue mantle. No retouching is visible in the details of the face, hair, and hands. Given its age the painting is in overall good condition and can be hung in its present state. Offered in a simple brown wood frame shaped to fit panel snugly.
