Saints Barbara and Agnes


a pair, each oil on canvas

each canvas: 26 by 19¾ in.; 66.1 by 50.2 cm.

(2)

The coarse-weave canvases are unlined and stable on their stretchers. The images read well beneath the varnish. Some minor frame abrasion is visible at the top center of both canvases and at the right edge of the St. Agnes. Under UV inspection of the St. Barbara: there appear to be 2 campaigns of retouching, one older including the area of sky left of her face and a spot in her collar, and a more recent campaign of a few spots in her face. UV inspection of St. Agnes: small spots of retouching are scattered in the face, chest, and hand and a larger spot is visible on her sleeve. Considering their age and unlined state the paintings are in good overall condition. They may improve with a fresh varnish but can also hang as is. Offered in matching carved giltwood frames with decorative oval insets.
