Condition/Notes : The Madonna and Child with Saints, oil painting on board, is in good condition with strong colours. There is no sign of damage or moisture to the support. The original drawing can be seen in many parts of the painting especially the faces, robes and decorations to the background. There is also some use of graphite in sections, especially the shading of the columns, and watercolour in other places. The painting has been given a light varnish which imparts a sheen to the larger areas of colour. There is a naive aspect to the work which imparts an air of spirituality to the scene beyond the obvious connotations. There is obscure script on the pages of the open book held by the saint on the left. The artist's monogram B.S. is written in the lower rh corner. The painting is displayed within a double mount, the inner being gilt and the major being stone colour. The inner gilt mount has been hand painted. Both mounts are in good condition. The gilt wooden frame is in good condition with light wear. The backing board is secured with panel pins and sealed with 50mm self-adhesive framing tape. In the top lh corner is faint pencil handscript, upside- down, which states "After Adelaide Labille-Guiard (1749-1803) c1783. Screw-eyes and cord attached. An interesting iconic painting.
