Roman Charity - Sold

A very fine early 18th century oil painting on canvas depicting Pero secretly breastfeeding her father, Cimon, after he has been incarcerated and sentenced to death by starvation.  A number of versions of this composition are known, the original is probably the painting in the British National Art Collection which hangs in Erddig Hall.  The present lot is a very good early example.
