Bernardo Strozzi (Genoa 1581 - Venice 1644) and workshop
The Nativity with the adoration of the shepherds

early seventeenth century (1610-1620)
oil on canvas

Dimensions (cm): 96 x 140
avec cadre 111 x 153

We propose a painting of the early seventeenth century, which recreates the famous Nativity created by Bernardo Strozzi between 1616 and 1618 for a noble Genoese client, a favorite theme by the artist and replicated in various versions, the most famous of which is now preserved in the Walters Art Museum of Baltimore.

Our canvas reveals a pictorial technique and a chromatic quality of high level, comparable to the canvas kept in Baltimore, and certainly superior to the various examples of this subject known on the market.

The proposed canvas is the work of an artist from the workshop of Bernardo Strozzi, one of the protagonists of the lively season of the Genoese Baroque, performed under the supervision of the same master and with his own participation. This is evidenced by the extraordinary quality of the pigments used for the laying of the pictorial layer, which has kept its color bright.

More uncertain is whether it was painted as a preparation or prototype of the work of Baltimore, or realized at a moment immediately following.

The conditions of conservation of the work appear excellent, the pictorial layer does not present any kind of problem, despite the dimensions of the canvas.

Complete with antique frame in gilded wood.
