The Preaching of Saint John the Baptist - Sold

An extremely fine early 17th century oil painting on canvas depicting Saint John the Baptist preaching from the circle of Adam Elsheimer - possibly an Elsheimer studio work.  The composition of the present lot is closely related to Elsheimer's original of c.1602 in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich with several of the figures common to both paintings though with extensive variations to the main figure group and with an original background - possibly an Elsheimer studio work.  The stretcher bears an old handwritten label verso attributing the painting to Elsheimer.
