Sebastiano Conca (Gaeta 1680 - Naples 1764), circle of
The Adoration of the Shepherds
oil on canvas, (cm): 122 x 100,
framed 146 x 124
The proposed painting, datable in the first decades of the eighteenth century, is a reissue of a painting by Sebastiano Conca made around 1710 for Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni (now the Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles: link).
The work represents the adoration of the shepherds, and creates wonder, as well as for the big ones, for the visual sense. The set is spectacular, with a pleasant effect of lights that are emitted by the child, support point of composition. Some paintings with the same subject or with slight variations have been presented at international auctions with considerable estimates. The canvas, in good condition, is accompanied by an antique frame, lacquered ivory.
