DescriptionOil on canvas. An elderly lady conversing with a young woman. The elderly lady, depicted with a hat and white kerchiefs, holds a collection box in her left hand. The younger lady, extremely pretty in a white, lace-trimmed blouse, gazes absent-mindedly towards the elderly woman. The contrasts, the play of colours and the quality of the painting are reminiscent of a successor of the famous Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (* 1571 in Milan; † 1610 in Porto Ercole). Framed dimensions 111 x 89 cm. Signs of age. Re-lined. Retouching in places. The frame with minor knocks here and there. The gilding abraded in places.
