Ex-voto or Grace Received, dated 1892, oil painting on wooden panel. It consists (see subject) in an offer made by a man to the Virgin Mary with Child Jesus in her arms, as a tribute for a fulfilled prayer (fall during an earthquake). A typical devotional item, commonly used in Italy as a sign of gratitude, after an alleged miracle. It was usually commissioned to local painters and depicting the gesture or miracle itself. Many of these items can be found in churches, sanctuaries, chapels and on the side of the road.
I think it is preserved in good condition, dimensions approx. 38x20 cm.
