Bartolomeo Schedoni (circle)
The Holy Family- Italian religious Old Master oil painting San Giovannino

17th Century


This stunning work depicts the Holy Family with San Giovannino. It is an oil on panel and dated to the early 17th century. The work is an interesting painting and bares strong painterly similarities to the work by Schedoni in the Fitzwilliam gallery in Cambridge. It has the name Schedoni verso so it is possible the attribution is to Schedoni or his studio. It also has a Frost and Reed Gallery label with the name Rubens – which attributes it to Rubens. It is possibly a Rubens Studio painting as they produced many religious oil paintings. It is a very fine Dutch/Italian Old Master religious portrait oil on panel which is by a top Old master hand. It is well painted and detailed. This is a scene depicted from the Bible many times throughout art history. The work would need research to verify the artist but is a fantastic painting nonetheless. Framed 26 inch by 22 inch in fine gilt period frame. Very good condition. Provenance. Purchased privately. Frost and Reed London Gallery label verso with old stock number. Bartolomeo Schedoni (1578-1615) was an Italian early Baroque painter from Reggio Emilia. He was born in Modena, and moved to Parma with his father, a mask-maker who served the Farnese court. In 1595 Schedoni traveled to Rome, where he apprenticed briefly under Federico Zuccari with the sponsorship of Ranuccio I Farnese, Duke of Parma. After falling ill, he returned to Parma. The baroque art historian Count Carlo Cesare Malvasia claims that Schedoni trained under Annibale Carracci in Bologna, although this is questionable; his early work reveals instead his study of Correggio's works in Parma.
