An Italian 17th Century Polychrome Scagliola Panel


Polychrome scagliola panel depicting the Virgin and Child, Bolognese school of the 17th century.

Scagliola is a composite substance based on selenite, glue and natural pigments, imitating marble and other hard stones. This complex technique was affirmed in Carpi in Italy at the beginning of the 17th century and replaced the use of more expensive materials with simpler and cheaper ones, a phenomenon that characterizes the transition from Renaissance to Baroque. The scagliola uses the beauty of the material and the finesse of the execution with aesthetic results warmer than the cold perfection of hard stone mosaics.

Very good state of conservation.
