Barok "memento mori" paint in the original frame. Italy. Circa 1720.

An unusual painting in oil on a wooden panel depicting a "memento mori" scene of a skull and crossed bones placed on a closed book from which one page has been torn out bearing the inscription "memento mori". The painting has retained its original carved and patinated pine-wooden frame with typical scrollwork.

On the back there is a double old museum stamp that reads :

MUSEO DELLA VANITAS // MEMENTO MORI // 25 x 15,5cm / 1720 // cc/149-AC

Southern Italy. Circa 1720.


Provenance: acquired from the UK art & antique trade.

Dimensions: 25cm x 15,5cm

Sold "as seen" with some old damages and losses, old traces of (inactive) woodworm in the back panel. This has been verified by our professional restorers (Atelier F. Swaelens - Brussels)
