Oil on copper painting with gilt frame depicting Penitent St. Peter.
Beautiful example of copper painting, probably of Tuscan school. Unique painting of top artistic value.
Paintings on copper date back to as early as 1560 but many paintings have been lost as copper used to be recovered during war and famine times and reused to make weapons and common utensils. For this reason, oil on copper paintings, known as "ramini", are rare. Some oil on copper paintings are are kept at the National Gallery in London - Opera Tobia and Elshemeier’s Angel - and at the Uffizi in Florence - the Pieta by Bronzino. Under Francesco I, Florence was one of the major centres for Italian oil on copper paintings.
