Set of Early Paintings of Old Testament Scenes
A very interesting set of four paintings depicting scenes from the Old Testament.
The paintings are on canvas and in the early twentieth century they had been made into a screen. The bobbin turned woodwork is not old, this in my view should be discarded. The paintings would look spectacular in a row with a little white space between them.
Raphael Valls (London Old Master dealer) has said they are Italian c1580 - 1610. They were bought from a mediaeval manor house in Cornwall, south west England.
The subjects are: Abraham preparing to sacrifice his son Jacob, before an angel comes down to take his hand; King David playing his harp; Jael saving the Israelites by killing Sisera with a tent peg; and Jonah and the whale.
As you can see there is some damage to each of the canvases. They deserve the attention of a professional restorer.
