Lot Essay

Francesco Novelli was the son and pupil of Pietro Antonio Novelli (see lot 31). Instead of following in his father’s footsteps as a painter of religious paintings and altarpieces, Francesco specialized in print making. His prints after the Old Masters, particularly those after Rembrandt, were so successful that they have often been mistaken for the original.
