A wooded landscape with figures and animals by a lake


oil on canvas

canvas: 27 3/4 by 37 1/4 in.; 70.5 by 94.5 cm.

framed: 34 by 43 in.; 86.4 by 109.2 cm. 

The canvas has been relined. It has a noticeable craqueleure pattern throughout the surface which is stable, though it feels less so along the very right edge near the frame. The thick paint layer has been preserved nicely, with the artist's signature brushwork intact throughout the foreground. Under ultraviolet light there are some areas of restoration along the bottom edge, both on the right and at center, but otherwise only a few scattered restorations flouresce. The painting is offered in a carved giltwood frame.

Son of the painter Gaspare Diziani, Antonio was mainly a landscapist, whose work was close in tone to the lyrical-pastoral scenes of Francesco Zuccarelli and Giuseppe Zais. His signature flickering brushstrokes can be seen here throughout the landscape as well as in the charming figures in the foreground.
