Continental School, 17th/18th Century

Battle Scene
Signed indistinctly l.l.

Estimate $800-1,200

The uniforms and weapons in this work appear to be 17th century in style. The texture of the original canvas is course. The lining is adhered with BEVA or something similar. There are tiny losses on the aforementioned tear but the surface seems to be stable otherwise.
