by Domenico Piola (1627-1703) Pen and brown ink, grey wash, squared in graphite 7.2 x 10.4”, professionally matted and mounted in a modern antique-style frame Provenance: Private collection, The Hague (Dutch/Holland) Private collection, UK The present drawing is squared which made it possible for the design to be transmitted to larger scale. The composition suggests that it would have been intended for the decoration of a ceiling, probably for one of Genoa's many wonderful churches.
It was owned by a gentleman named Mike Riddick before me. It was owned by private collectors in the The Hague and the UK.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the day of the appraisal. Is there any written expertise or attribution by a known art historian?
With kind regards,
