An 'Arte Povera' mirror

This beautiful mirror was made in Venice in the mid-18th century.
In the 18th century, a technique called "arte povera" was developed in Venice.
Cut-out, colored engravings were glued on the lacquered surface of the mirror case, then it was covered with several layers of transparent lacquer called sandarac.
Sandarac is a type of resin that was extracted from pine trees and was mainly from the Mediterranean region. The use of sandarac made the varnish very hard. In this way the Asian lacquers, at that time sought after but very expensive, were imitated
On the frame a representation with a rural scene, with people and animals, with trees with birds and in which hunting.
The mirror is in original condition.

Italian, Veneto
Circa 1750
