Ancient fresco / 16th-century sinopia on canvas

Lombardy, Italy.

Fragment on canvas, detached from wall. Very rare preparatory fresco detached in the 1980s from a wall of a noble palace in Lombardy. It depicts two winged lions with female faces and, in the centre, a crown and a heraldic coat of arms. There is part of the original crack and 16th century pigments visible to the naked eye. There has been a recent reconstructive and conservative restoration.

A sinopia is a preparatory design used for fresco painting and mosaic painting. It requires a special red clay that originally was available in Sinope, on the Black Sea.

Once this phase is completed, the drawing is progressively covered with the last layer of plaster.

Sinopia was widely used until the early 16th century, when it was gradually replaced by graffiti (signs obtained by pressing on the outline of the preparatory design) and pouncing (drawings performed on cartons then drilled along the contours and pounced with charcoal powder so that dotted lines appear on the wall).

    Giudizio positivo per il dipinto che risulta di discreta fattura. Giudizio negativo per la cornice. Cinque degli otto fregi dorati sono arrivati staccati e spezzettati. Imballaggio inadeguato.

    Se ci avesse contattato avremmo risolto il problema relativo al lieve danno creato alla cornice con la spedizione. I nostri imballaggi sono molto accurati come testimoniato dai nostri feedback, curiamo ogni dettaglio per evitare anche piccole defezioni dovute al trasporto. Se ci avesse contattato, anziché procedere con un giudizio neutro, ci saremmo rivolti con buon senso all'assicurazione del corriere dato che non siamo responsabili del trasporto ma ci assumiamo la responsabilità di tutelare sempre i nostri clienti. Ci fa tuttavia piacere che il dipinto sia di suo gradimento. Cordialità
