A large 18th/19thC religious oil on canvas
Stock #: 23028
An interesting antique oil on canvas of a religious scene depicting Samuel under instruction from Eli. This is after the original (1780) by John Singleton Copley (Anglo American born in Boston). The canvas is of considerable age and due to deterioration and damage has been mounted on board at some time in the past. This has stabilized it for the future. The back of the board is covered with old early 19thC (1811) Bible pages. It is unsigned and un dated but is without doubt 19th or possibly late 18thC. The frame is of the same period and it retains most of its original gilding. There is damage and overpainting but it would still look magnificent in the right setting. Please ask for more photos if you are interested.
107 cm wide 87 cm high and about 5 cm deep.
