Painted by Carlo Schwicker (German, 19th century), who made many works after famous Old Master paintings. Signed "Carlo Schwicker Fece" on the reverse and also marked "J.W. Austin", likely a previous owner of the piece. Painting has some paint loss and scratches. Patches on back of canvas. Colors are dark to imitate the aging of the original or a studio copy in the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. 41 1/2" wide by about 49 1/2" tall (framed). Large shipping item.
