OSMINO, THE LITTLE FLUTE PLAYER
After the original pen and ink on laid paper, ca. 1775.

PIETRO ANTONIO NOVELLI
(Italian 1729-1804)


Mouse-over for a twice  life size close-up

A DELICATELY EXECUTED, ROMANTIC IMAGE
FROM A VENETIAN MASTER

The script translates to English as:

Osmino, passes the merry hours with his flute under the shade of green leaves.

The original work (brown and black ink with grey and brown washes) relied heavily on the toned paper for its effect. Accordingly the paper has not been taken back to white and the aging artefacts, whilst very significantly reduced, have been retained. As usual, all the foxing, wear and damage have been eliminated.

For easier mounting, the edge borders have been expanded slightly.
