Young Jesus
Size: approximately: 3 3/8” x 2 ½”

Exquisite antique painted Jesus. The back of the painting has the retailer's paper label for Max Sinz, Kunsthandlung Dresden.

Colliers' Guide to Dresden for 1910 there is a listing under ART-SHOPS for — Max Sinz, Mosczinskystrasse 1. From various Internet references it seems Max Sinz retailed various art works, including KPM plaques and art prints. Whether he actually painted the miniature or just commissioned it for sale in his art shop is unclear.

John the Baptist
Size: approximately: 3 3/8” x 2 ½”

Exquisite antique painted John the Baptist. The back of the painting has a printed paper label with handwritten numbers and what appears to be a price that has been changed.

    The painting of Jesus is from a well known painting and I'm trying to remember... I believe I saw it in a children's Bible or storybook. I think it's a protrayal of Jesus in the temple. Some of the images you never forget.....

    Eckardt - The Young Jesus is the one on the right - a detail after Heinrich Hoffmann's 'Christ in the Temple' depicting a shoulder-length portrait of Jesus as a boy.
