About

France 17th Century, circle of Pierre Mignard (1612-1695) Saint John the Evangelist, oil on copper 20 x 17 cm oval in his original 17th century frame 29 x 25 cm (oval) The copper surface is slighly accidented as you can see on the picture taken under indirect light, some traces of schocks and deformations. Inpaintings are also clearly visible on the left of the red mantle and some small ones the blue toga and in the face. The frame is also a little bit damaged as visible on the pictures. The back has been reinforced with an oval hardboard The style and hand are really close to the art of Pierre Mignard (1612-1695), active at this time The softness of the attitude, the way to paint the eyes, these characteristics that made precisely the painter famous. It's striking when compared to artworks of this artist But it's still difficult to assert a sure attribution when lacking documented proofs. Anyway it was painted by a good painter at this time and place, maybe in his worshop. These kind of paintings were painted for the family altars placed in the bedrooms as support for the daily prayer. That's why the Saint stares at the viewer with kindness as to encourage his devotion.
