image-2Pain­ting found in a gara­ge sale in Sou­thea­st Asia ended up to the pre­sti­gious Old Master Auc­tion of Sotheby’s Lon­don.

Beau­ty and power of the art­work were brought to life due to the meti­cu­lous resto­ra­tion effort of a respec­ta­ble Ger­man resto­rer, it was during the resto­ra­tion that “lead whi­te” pig­ment was con­fir­med, it was the only whi­te used in Euro­pean easel pain­ting until the end of 19th cen­tu­ry and has been pro­du­ced sin­ce ear­ly histo­ri­cal time until 1750. Ima­ge was sub­mit­ted and was even­tual­ly clea­red from the archi­ve of art lost regi­ster – a lar­ge list of all art works that have been lost and sto­len in the past. Pain­ting recei­ved impo­tant writ­ten attri­bu­tion from Pro­fes­sor Gian­car­lo Sestie­ri, a scho­lar of bat­tle pain­ting and author of Bat­ta­gli­sti, The Pain­ting of the Bat­tle from the 16th to the 18th cen­tu­ry.

Almo­st cine­ma­tic ren­di­tion by the arti­st tells best from a distan­ce. The main oppo­nen­ts can be seen cla­shing in a well-balan­ced bac­k­drop. The pain­ter sho­wed his skills in enfor­cing a uni­form dyna­mi­sm into the cro­w­ded lay­ou­ts.

The museum qua­li­ty oil on can­vas pain­ting titled, “A Cal­va­ry Enga­ge­ment”, with mea­su­re­men­ts of 94 x 169.5 cen­ti­me­ters or 37 x 66 3/4 inches by 17th cen­tu­ry Nea­po­li­tan pain­ter Mar­zio Mastur­zo will be part of Old Master & Bri­tish Pain­tings Day Sale of Sotheby’s Lon­don this 10 Decem­ber 2015.

The beau­ti­ful pain­ting has gone throu­gh a lot and tra­vel­led from Ita­ly to Spain to the Phi­lip­pi­nes and back to Euro­pe, it will be won­der­ful if “A Cal­va­ry Enga­ge­ment” will end its jour­ney to wor­thy col­lec­tor or museum.
