Religious painting after Matthäus Schiestl.
A wonderful painting by an artist named Emmer or Emner after a painting of the Austrian painter Matthäus Schiestl.
The original painting by Schiestl is located in the Mariendom, Freising, Germany. It is one of the paintings by Schiestl that were embedded in the “St. Johns altar”, a Neo-Gothic altarpiece. In the right lower corner of this painting it says “Copie” and the name Emmer or Emner. On the left Schiestls autograph.
An old black and white photo was attached at the back of the painting. It looks like a priest or someone in service of the Catholic Church. Since this is not an exact copy of Schiestls painting but it differs on some points, it could very well be that a church or catholic person ordered this painting to be made.
This big painting measures 83 cm x 70 cm.
The picture is framed with a original robust brown frame. The frame has some spots but nothing serious.
The painting has a new layer of lacquer and a few damaged areas are retouched. You can read about this process here: Cleaning an old painting .
Some craquelure still is visible on the painting.
In the future the painting could use some new stretching to remove some light waving of the canvas.
Price: 800 € exclusive of shipping costs.
