Maestro Napoletano del 18° Secolo - Sacrificio di Ifigenia
Huile sur toile - Non signé(e) - XVIII Secolo d.C.

Antique painting, oil on canvas, 18th century, depicting the sacrifice of Iphigenia.

This refined painting, made with a fast and instinctive technique, appears clearly attributable to an artist of sure talent, operating in Naples in the eighteenth century and to be identified probably with a pupil or close follower of Francesco Solimena.

Among the students of this master, the stylistic references of our canvas go well with the biography and artistic personality of artists such as Jacopo Cestaro (Bagnoli Irpino, 1718 - Naples, 1778), and the analysis of the craquelure would indicate a coeval dating and a hypothetical attribution of the work to the artist.

With a beautiful and recent frame, lacquered, gilded and decorated with leaves pattern.

The painting is in good condition considering its age; with some old scattered restorations and some light peeling of the painted surface, but no significant damage. No conservation problems, the original canvas does not appear to have been relined, reinforcement strips along the four sides of the stretcher, which has been most likely replaced around the late XIX century. Fine craquelure compatible with age.

Canvas size: 64 x 73,5 cm. Frame size: 83,5 x 93 cm.
