No doubt this was headed for the trash! I found it in the back of a shop torn, wrinkled, and filthy. I was able to flatten it, but I am yet to clean or attempt to inpaint.
My best guess is that it is the work of Giovanni Segala (1663-1720), but neither the frame or the stretcher seemed so old. The back of the canvas had many repairs and it may be correct. Any opinions? Any restoration suggestions?
